SACU deploys mobile ATM to assist Houston
SAN ANTONIO, Texas (9/19/08)--San Antonio FCU (SACU) has set up a mobile ATM at its Fallbrook Branch in Houston, Texas, to help get its members and other residents affected by Hurricane Ike access to their money.

"Utilities are being restored in parts of town, but the traditional ATMs are not back on line at this time,” SACU Senior Vice President Chuck Smith said. “Our credit union wants to make every effort to help out in this crisis. The mobile ATM is a perfect way to bridge the gap until services are restored. Because credit and debit cards aren’t working in many places, having access to cash is essential.” The SACU Fallbrook Branch will reopen as soon as it can, and the ATM will remain in place as long as it is needed, the $2.6 billion asset credit union said.
