Electrical/GFCI:  Always test GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters) prior to use and always inspect extension cords prior to use and remove from service any damage cords.

Additional safety rules to remember for extension cords:

  1. Use a GFCI on all extension cords.
  2. Do not plug multiple extension cords into each other.
  3. Do not use damaged cords - watch out for electrical tape on extension cords.
  4. Do not use nails or staples to affix or attach extension cords to walls or ceilings.
  5. Do not run extension cords through doorways.
