Romeo O. Spaulding
Fourth president of the
International Association of Black Professional Fire Fighters
Romeo Spaulding was and is a living landmark not only in Washington D.C. but in
the International Association of Black Professional Fire Fighters as well. He took the
fight for the rights of black firefighters to the courthouse and the White House.
Serving eight years as the President of the IABPFF he reached across all regions to
unite this organization. He was also a founding member of the Executive
Development Institute (EDI). Under his leadership we developed a community footprint with fire and life safety education in churches, daycares, and civic organizations.
