  ACUTE HAZARDS PREVENTION FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE & EXPLOSION Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire. Heating will cause rise in pressure with risk of bursting.    NO open flames.    Use water spray, foam, powder, carbon dioxide.   

 PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST!  
  SYMPTOMS ACUTE HAZARDS FIRST AID
Inhalation Cough.  Use local exhaust and breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. 
Skin   Protective gloves.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. 
Eyes Redness. Pain.  Wear safety spectacles.  Rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible). 
Ingestion   Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.  Rinse mouth.
