5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Suitable (and unsuitable) extinguishing media:
Specific Hazards:
Special protective equipment and precautions for firefighters:
Use dry chemical, foam or CO2 extinguishing media. If water is used to fight fire, dike and collect
runoff.
During a fire, irritating and possibly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or
combustion.
Wear full protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus. Evacuate nonessential personnel
from the area to
prevent human exposure to fire, smoke, fumes or products of combustion.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Personal precautions, protective equipment, and emergency procedures:
Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up:
Follow exposure controls/personal protection outlined in Section 8.
Avoid dust formation.
Control the spill at its source. Contain the spill to prevent from spreading or contaminating soil or from
entering sewage and
drainage systems or any body of water. Clean up spills immediately, observing precautions outlined in
Section 8. Sweep
up material and place in a compatible disposal container. Scrub area with hard water detergent (e.g.
commercial products
such as Tide, Joy, Spic and Span). Pick up wash liquid with additional absorbent and place into
compatible disposal
container. Once all material is cleaned up and placed in a disposal container, seal container and arrange
for disposition.
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Precautions for safe handling:
Store the material in a well-ventilated, secure area out of reach of children and domestic animals. Do
not store food,
beverages or tobacco products in the storage area. Prevent eating, drinking, tobacco use, and cosmetic
application in areas
where there is a potential for exposure to the material. Wash thoroughly with soap and water after
handling.
