NEEDHAM, MA -- Firestone Financial, a subsidiary of Berkshire Bank, has announced plans to offer assistance to customers impacted by Hurricane Dorian. The hurricane brought high winds, heavy rain and heavy seas to the southeastern United States last week.

"During a major hurricane like Dorian, the last thing we want is for our customers to worry about their loans and other finances," said Michael Smith, Firestone's executive vice-president and chief operations officer. "Their focus should be on their own safety and the safety of their families.

"We'll work with impacted customers in this time leading up to and in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian," Smith said as the storm approached. "Our priority is helping our customers protect and preserve their businesses."

Firestone Financial customers who are affected by the hurricane and should contact their account representative or the customer service department at (800) 851-1001.
