Proud to Serve

The first to arrive and the first to help

We honor the unsung heroes of our community — Oklahoma's First Responders & Front- Line Workers

Do you know an outstanding Oklahoma First Responder? Someone who has gone above and beyond the call of duty to help those in need? We want to hear those stories and recognize these heroes!

In 2020, Quail Creek Bank teamed up with KFOR Oklahoma’s News 4 to recognize first responders and front-line workers who are risking their lives every day for the citizens of Oklahoma. Whether they are fighting crime in our streets, rescuing others from dangerous situations, offering a caring hand to those in need, or serving our country, we are honored to recognize these outstanding human beings for their sacrifice and commitment!
