Arthur Battles
Retirees Committee
Orlando, Fl

Sabrina Potter is also assisting with this Committee as well.

This committee is charged with connecting, engaging with and representing our retirees.

There are several black retired Firefighters that get together each year and even more often. We hope to make the connection so that we all get fellowship together.

I want to help make it better by connecting those who have not been connected to date. In my travels, I have found retirees in Chicago, Washington, DC, and other places were not connected; yet. If you have a retiree group in your area, or know retirees in your region that may be interested in the reunion for information, contact Brother Nelson Braswell @ 646-232-1000 (c). Let us know below if their may be others interested in becoming more active in the IABPFF nationally. regionally, or locally. Thank you in advance. Peace and plenty of it!

Below are a few groups and events we know of. If your group isn’t listed, please post it below.
