GFCI" stands for ground-fault circuit interrupter, which is an inexpensive electrical device that, if installed in household branch circuits, could prevent more than two-thirds of the approximately 300 electrocutions still occurring each year in and around the home. Installation of the device could also prevent thousands of injuries each year from burns and electric shocks. Currently, most jurisdictions require GFCI protection for every receptacle/outlet and motor connection in every location of habitable area, as well as areas where the environment might be wet, moist or damp. That means everywhere in a bathroom, all the countertop outlets in the kitchen, and within 6 feet of the sink at the wet bar. It also means everywhere outside.
This image shows a required location for GFCI around kitchen sink. Recommend GFCI’s install to local code by electrician.
