GFCI - Ground Fault Circuit Interruption.
A GFCI is an electronic device for protecting people from serious injury due to electric shock. GFCI's constantly monitor electricity flowing in a circuit. If the flow differs by even a slight amount from that returning, the GFCI will quickly shut off the current flowing through that circuit. GFCI's can detect even small variations in the amount of current flowing through an electrical product, even amounts too small to activate a fuse or circuit breaker. GFCI's work quickly to help protect consumers from severe electric shocks and electrocution
The third prong on a plug provides a path to ground for electricity that is straying or leaking from a product. This helps protect the equipment and can help prevent electric shock.
