Fire Fighting Procedures

If material on fire or involved in fire: Do not extinguish fire unless flow can be stopped. Use water in flooding quantities as fog. Cool all affected containers with flooding quantities of water. Apply water from as far a distance as possible. Solid streams of water may be ineffective. Use "alcohol" foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide. /Cyanogen, liquefied/
Stop flow of gas before extinguishing fire. Use fine spray or fog to control fire by preventing its spread and absorbing some of its heat. Use water spray to keep fire-exposed containers cool. Fight fire from protected location or maximum possible distance. Control runoff and isolate discharged material for proper disposal.
Carbon dioxide fire extinguishers must not be used where cyanide salts are present. /Cyanide salts/
