West Virginia University Fire Service Extension (WVU-FSE), is an Authorized Instruction Site for the National Fire Academy (NFA) courses. WVU-FSE as identified in West Virginia Statute and by agreement, is recognized by the NFA as the designated State Fire Service Training Agency in West Virginia.

West Virginia University Fire Service Extension (WVU-FSE) is a leader in providing critical, high-quality training to public and private sector emergency responders. We work with federal, state, and local organizations to meet national consensus standards and develop needed curricula. We train firefighters, emergency service workers, military, and industry.

WVU-FSE delivers approximately 500 courses annually to over 15,000 public and private responders. WVU was founded in 1867 as a land-grant institution. In 1914 the Smith-Lever Act establishing a national Extension Service was signed into law. West Virginia was among the first 12 states to" take the university to the people." WVU-FSE is located at WV State Fire Academy in Weston, West Virginia, home to WVU Jackson's Mill and the State 4-H Camp.
