OCC Allows National Bank Offices Affected by California Wildfires to Close
WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency today issued a proclamation allowing national bank offices affected by the wildfires in Southern California to close at their discretion.
In issuing the proclamation, Comptroller of the Currency John D. Hawke, Jr. said he expects that only those bank offices directly affected by wildfires will close. Those offices should make every effort to reopen as quickly as possible to address the banking needs of their customers, he added.
