WAUWATOSA — WaterStone Bank has
created a program to serve area first responders called HERO.
According to the announcement, the “HERO acronym was chosen to
reflect the selflessness of this population and stands for ‘Honoring
Emergency Responding Officials.’” The program is an add-on feature
for personal checking accounts and offers a number of benefits
including $100 with direct deposit, 3-in-1 escape tool upon
enrollment in the program, annual voucher for a free U.S. flag, no
fee ATM transactions, no fee overdraft protection transfers, no fee

unsung heroes with banking products and services that show our
gratitude for their bravery,” said Doug Gordon, WaterStone Bank
president and CEO, in a statement.
