In May 2013, a tornado devastated much of the City of Moore, OK. Despite the destruction happening around them the employees of Tinker Federal Credit Union had peace of mind due to their Emergency Response Plan.
These men and women survived the May 20th EF-5 tornado by executing their rehearsed Emergency Response Plan. The Moore, OK branch was completely destroyed, but no employees were harmed because they took shelter in the bank vault.
