Ask Your Local Expert: Testing GFCI’s In Your Home

You may have seen electrical outlets in your home that have a “test” and “reset” button on them but do you know what they’re for?

These receptacles are actually Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI’s) that can protect you from shock – if working properly.  Because May is National Electrical Safety Month, we decided to ask our local expert how to test these and why doing so could be life-saving.

Know someone in Naperville who is doing good deeds for others?

​If you know someone who demonstrates on-going acts of kindness or perhaps initiated a one-time special good deed, we invite you to nominate them!
