WASHINGTON, D.C. - The National Electrical Safety Foundation (NESF) and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) together urge consumers to be aware of ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs), mainly - the "TEST" and "RESET" Buttons - on outlets in bathrooms, kitchens and breaker panels - in their home and business, and to test them monthly and after every major electrical storm.

 

To get the message out, as part of National Electrical Safety Month in May, the NESF recently launched the "Test and Protect" GFCI Awareness media campaign, sending print and video news releases to media across the country.
