Folsom, Calif. – Feb. 14, 2017 – In response to the mandatory evacuation orders impacting communities along the Feather River Basin in Butte, Sutter, and Yuba counties, SAFE Credit Union has taken steps to extend assistance to our employees and members.
SAFE employees who live in the affected region, or are hosting family or friends who have evacuated their homes, were encouraged to remain in a safe location until the situation stabilized and evacuation orders were lifted.
