At First National Bank of Fort Smith, we’re committed to making our products and services accessible to everyone. For customers who may need special services to access our products or services, we have a number of solutions in place to provide or improve access. Our solutions are designed to assist with products and services delivery in our branches, at ATMs, online and by telephone. We work hard to provide our services in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and applicable state and local laws. Our team are also ready to provide assistance upon request.
We monitor our locations to assure compliance with the ADA, state and local laws and look for opportunities to improve accessibility for the disabled, including matters of accessible ramps, curb cuts, walkways, entrance doors, lobby areas, teller lines, counters and customer service desks. We offer reserved parking spaces for disabled customers at branches with onsite parking facilities.

Customer Service for Disabled Persons
For the deaf, hearing or speech impaired: We will communicate in our branches by exchanging notes if the customer is comfortable with that approach. Alternatively, if feasible, we will attempt to provide a sign language interpreter for more complex situations on a case-by-case basis.
For blind or visually impaired persons: Customer Service representatives will assist these customers in reading and completing basic documents and forms upon request and, if possible, make copies of basic documents in enlarged print, as needed. Upon advance request, we can provide regular copies of cancelled checks in large type.
Additional Accommodations for Disabled Persons
Some persons may have other disability-related needs. We review individual requests related to special needs on a case-by-case basis and always seek to provide reasonable accommodations.
