Fall Electrical Safety Tips – Part 3 (GFCI)

 
Since the ’70s, ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) have saved thousands of lives and have helped cut the number of home electrocutions in half. GFCIs are an electrical outlet that trip electrical circuits when they detect ground faults or leakage currents. Without these a person can be severely shocked or electrocuted. These outlets prevent deadly shock by quickly shutting off power to the circuit. Typically you see them in bathrooms, kitchens, garages, and outside. A GFCI should be used in any indoor or outdoor area where water may come into contact with an electrical product.
