The Center for Life Safety Education is a nonprofit educational organization recognized under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code. As an educational affiliate of the American Fire Sprinkler Association, CLSE provides:

  • college scholarships for degrees in fire protection;
  • continuing education and training for Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJs) and the fire service;

A Board of Directors oversees policy and program development, and funding for CLSE programs comes almost entirely from contributions and training fees. Because CLSE is a nonprofit educational organization, contributions are tax deductible.
