Wear protective and proper clothing and oxygen mask. Evacuate affected areas. During a fire, irritating and possible toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. Prevent entrance into the affected area until decontamination. The water used to extinguish a fire may cause environmental damages, so it must be collected, packed and decontaminated by filtration using absorbent activated charcoal. At the same time, charcoal must be incinerated afterwards. 5.2 Firefighting procedures Combustion products may be toxic and/or irritating. Measures must be taken to avoid soil filtering or uncontrolled spreading of the contaminated extinguishing agent.
