A: Fire Academy FSA is a domestic not-for-profit corporation that is completely separate from the New York State Academy of Fire Science and the Office of Fire Prevention and Control. Although we support activities and programs to benefit the students and faculty at the fire academy, Fire Academy FSA is NOT a part of New York State. The New York State Academy of Fire Science is a division of the New York State Department of State, Office of Fire Prevention and Control. In part, this means that Fire Academy FSA cannot accept payments directed to the New York State Fire Academy, and the New York State Fire Academy cannot accept payments directed to Fire Academy FSA.
