The Independent Community Bankers of America announced on Wednesday the extension of its agreement with Agility Recovery, solidifying the firm as a preferred service provider in disaster preparedness for its member banks.
“ICBA is pleased to continue its relationship with Agility Recovery, which enables community banks to continue serving their customers regardless of operational challenges that may even include catastrophic disasters affecting the entire community,” Dan Clancy, ICBA’s executive vice president of services, said. “This valuable program has already helped many of ICBA’s member banks to continue serving their communities while facing problems ranging from minor flooding to major tornadoes.”
Agility has served as an ICBA preferred service provider since 2009, and in 2010, the provider helped ICBA member Worthington Federal Bank return its branch to operation following a tornado disaster.
“Over the past few years, Agility has seen explosive growth within the banking and financial industry,” Agility Vice President of Marketing Taylor Busby said. “Our relationship with ICBA and its members has been a catalyst for that growth. Disaster preparedness is a serious issue. I’m pleased to see so many banks leading the way, even in the most devastating circumstances.”
If a disaster occurs, Agility provides the bank with disaster recovery services, including phone and internet, power generation, technology and office space.
