|5. Fire Fighting Measures|
|SMALL FIRES: Dry chemical, CO2, Halon, water spray or standard foam.
LARGE FIRES: Water spray, fog or standard foam is recommended.
Move container from fire area if you can do it without risk.
Fight fire from maximum distance. Stay away from ends of tank.
Dike fire control water for later disposal; do not scatter the material.
Keep unnecessary people away; isolate hazard area and deny entry.
Stay upwind; keep out of low areas, and ventilate closed spaces before
Positive-pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and
chemical protective clothing that is specifically recommended by the shipper
or manufacturer may be worn. It will provide little or no thermal protection.
Structural firefighter's protective clothing is NOT effective
with these materials.
Remove and isolate contaminated clothing at the site.

local exhaust ventilation at the site of chemical release.
Use a non-sparking, grounded ventilation system separate from other
exhaust ventilation systems. Exhaust directly to the outside.
Supply sufficient replacement air to make up for air removed.
Have a safety shower/eye wash fountain readily available in the immediate work area
|Personal Protection||If engineering controls and work practices are not effective in
controlling this material, then wear suitable personal protection
equipment, including chemical safety goggles & face shield, boots,
imperious gloves, coveralls, & respiratory protection.
Have appropriate equipment available for use in emergencies.
