Question lights/outlets in crawlspace?

Is it permissible in code to install lights and/or outlets in a crawlspace? I assume that a GFCI circuit breaker would be required and/or reccomended. If they are permissible can they be on the same circuit? Actually, scratch that, probably a bad idea in case you trip the circuit while working in the crawlspace... then you're in the dark.

Yes, it's okay to put receptacles and lighting in a crawl space. In fact, depending on what's in that crawl space, it might be required. Receptacles would require GFCI; lighting would not. And yes of course they could be on the same circuit, and, properly wired, the lights won't go out if the GFCI trips.
