Frequently Asked Questions
Is it safe to use my credit card?
The NFPA online catalog uses industry standard security with an SSL certificate. This secures your credit card information once it reaches our server. The browser program you have on your computer comprises the other half of the security picture. You can see if your browser can create a 'secure handshake' with the secure server by looking for the picture of the padlock in the bottom of your browser window. If the padlock is in the closed and locked position when you are on the payment screen, then you have a secure connection. If you do not see the closed padlock, then you may need to upgrade your browser software. Of course you can always place your order over the telephone by calling 1-800-344-3555. From outside the U.S. and Canada, the telephone number is 1-617-770-3000. The toll free Customer Service number for Mexico is 95-800-844-6058. Customer Service hours are 8:30 A.M. - 5:00 P.M. (EST).
