Yes this is safe. But you need to purchase the right parts to make this work. I would recommend talking with the electrical department at Home Depot or Menards for something like this. The easiest and safest way will be to buy some stranded 10/3 wire (be warned, they charge an arm and a leg for this) and a junction box. Join the longest cord you can get to the 10/3 in the junction box using standard wiring devices. Then run the 10/3 to the dryer.
