Keep Safe From Electrocution With GFCI Outlets

  • Ground fault circuit interrupter outlets are different from your circuit breakers and standard outlets because they protect your home’s electrical system. They must be installed in areas with moisture, including kitchens, bathrooms, and garages. You can identify them by the “test” and “reset” buttons. GFCI outlets monitor electrical currents and cut the power when they detect an excess or imbalance in the flow of electricity. They respond before the electrical current can affect your heartbeat. GFCIs are designed to work in as little as one-thirtieth of a second to protect you from electrocution.

  • It’s important that everyone in your home understands the way GFCI outlets operate and test them. If your GFCI outlet cuts off your power to the outlet, press “reset” to engage the electricity again. We recommend monthly testing of your GFCI outlets. The best way to test your GFCI outlets include the following:

    1. Push the "test" button to cut off your outlet’s electrical flow.
    2. Plug in a small device and check that the power is cut off.
    3. Press the “reset” button to resume electrical flow.
