Fire Fighting Procedures

To fight fire, stop flow of gas.
Do not extinguish fire unless flow can be stopped. If possible use foam, carbon dioxide, or dry chemical to extinguish fire. If none of these compounds are available use water in flooding quantities as a fog, being sure to cool all affected containers. Apply water from as far a distance as possible, and do not use solid streams of water since they may be ineffective. Keep material out of water sources and sewers and build dikes as necessary to contain flow. Wear self contained breathing apparatus, boots, protective gloves and goggles and be sure to wash away any material which may have contacted the body with copious amounts of water or soap and water. Do not handle damaged packages without protective equipment. If fire becomes uncontrollable or a container is exposed to direct flame, evacuate for a radius of 2500 feet. If material leaking (and is not on fire), downwind evacuation must be considered.
Use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide.
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus for firefighting if necessary. Use water spray to cool unopened containers.
