Fire Fighting Procedures

Stop discharge if possible. Cool exposed containers with water.

Extinguish fire using agent suitable for surrounding fire. Use dry chemical, foam, carbon dioxide, or water spray. Water may be ineffective. Explosive decomposition may occur under fire conditions. Fight fire from protected location or maximum possible distance. Use water spray to keep fire-exposed containers cool. Approach fire from upwind to avoid hazardous vapors and toxic decomposition products.

If material involved in fire: Extinguish fire using agent suitable for type of surrounding fire. (Material itself does not burn or burns with difficulty.). Use water in flooding quantities as fog. Use foam, dry chemical, or carbon dioxide.

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. Use "alcohol" foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide. Extinguish fire using agent suitable for type of fire. /Chloropicrin (Toxic liquids, flammable, organic, NOS)/
