Community. EMS Books.com has been providing Emergency Services texts and
training materials since 1979. FirehouseBooks. EmergencyTees
and FirehouseFoods have grown and were combined into the website EmergencyStuff that you see today. A family owned and operated business, we have grown from a front
porch operation to a large warehouse. We currently carry over 5000
titles of books as well as hundreds of shirts, gifts, personal protective items and training materials.
Serving the individual with the same fast
service as the big volume customers is one of our greatest strengths.
Our customers are treated personally and get fast service and discounted prices.
Our success is based on the knowledge and background of
our staff. With experienced EMT's, Paramedics and Firefighters and Law
Enforcement providers we know the language and the customer needs far
better than many big company corporate telemarketers. Keeping our
overhead costs down and treating customers well, provides us with the
best advertising there is, YOU- a satisfied customer that returns and recommends us to others.

Why can't I order from your site?
customers can't order from your site, the problem is almost always that
they can't make a secure connection to the server. To test whether this
is the problem, have them go to
(note the s after http) and see if they
get through. If someone can't get through to Microsoft either, then the
problem is on their end.
There are two possible reasons people
can't set up secure connections. They could have a really ancient
browser, in which case they should get an upgrade.
They could be
behind a corporate firewall that won't allow secure connections. In that
case the solution is either to ask the network manager to fix the
firewall, or to order from a computer outside the firewall.
What kind of security does your site use?
use the Stronghold secure server, currently the second best selling
secure server software, and in our opinion, technically the best
product. It supports industry-standard 128-bit SSL encryption.

way to know that both orders should go into the same shopping basket.

Why does it say I am being redirected to an insecure page?
the consumer places the order, we send them back to whatever page they
last viewed in your site (or some other page you specify). The order
form is secure, and the regular site pages aren't.
redirect from a secure to an insecure page, the browser issues a
warning. And unfortunately, all the security warnings issued by the
browser sound equally terrifying, whether they are really important or
(as in this case) not.
