What is an RCD?
“An RCD is a life-saving device which is
designed to prevent you from getting
a fatal electric shock if you touch
something live, such as a bare wire.
It provides a level of protection that
ordinary fuses or circuit-breakers cannot.
Like a smoke detector, an RCD installed
in your fuse box could save your life”
