Rosslyn, Va.-based National Electrical Manufacturers Association's (NEMA) Low Voltage Distribution Equipment Section (LVDE) recently launched a Web site devoted to educating homeowners, electrical contractors, and those involved in home construction about arc fault circuit interrupters (AFCIs). "AFCIs are a technological leap forward in home safety, and they have significant potential to save lives and loss of property caused by electrical fires in the home," says Gerard Winstanley, LVDE technical program manager for NEMA. "The new website is NEMA's way to make homeowners, builders and electrical contractors aware of the safety benefits that AFCIs provide."
