WHO WE ARE

The Georgia Public Safety Educators Association (GPSEA) formed in 1985 is a non-profit 501(C)(3) organization. Its purpose is to promote fire and life safety through the sharing of concepts and program information by fire and life safety educators throughout the State of Georgia. GPSEA provides a forum for the exchange of ideas among educators and those charged with the responsibility of presenting safety programs. Experts are also brought in to provide members with professional development in specialized areas.

The organization once was called Fire Safety Educators Association of Georgia but a change was made because many of our agencies have taken on life safety education which includes child passenger safety, water, bicycle, and pedestrian safety as well as fire safety messages.
