First-aid measures

First Aid for Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with copious amounts of tepid water for at least 15 minutes. If irritation, pain, swelling, excessive tearing, or light sensitivity persists, the patient should be seen in a health care facility and referral to an ophthalmologist considered.
First Aid for Skin: Immediately flush exposed area with copious amounts of tepid water for at least 15 minutes followed by washing area thoroughly with soap and water.
First Aid for Inhalation: Move patient to fresh air. Monitor for respiratory distress. If cough or difficulty in breathing develops, evaluate for respiratory tract irritation, bronchitis, or pneumonitis. If trained to do so administer supplemental oxygen with assisted ventilation as required. Administer artificial respiration if patient is not breathing.
First Aid for Ingestion: Call a physician. If conscious, give the patient milk or water to drink immediately. Do not induce vomiting.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing Media: Stopping the flow of gas rather than extinguishing the fire is usually the best procedure to follow when escaping gas is burning.
Small Fire:......................................... Dry chemical or CO2
Large Fire:......................................... Water spray, fog or foam

Special Fire Fighting Procedures: Do not get water inside container.
Move container from fire area if you can do it without risk.
Apply cooling water to sides of containers that are exposed to flames until well after fire is out. Stay away from ends of tanks due to exploding potential when tanks are involved in a fire.
Isolate area until gas has dispersed.
Use water spray or foam to control vapour
Positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) should be used when there is a potential for inhalation of vapors and/or fumes.

Accidental release measures

Keep unnecessary people away, isolate hazard area and deny entry. Stay upwind, out of low areas, and ventilate closed spaces before entering. Evaluate the affected area to determine whether to evacuate or shelter-in-place by taping windows and doors, shutting off outside air intakes (attic fans, etc.), and placing a wet towel or cloth over the face (if needed). With proper training, self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and structural firefighter’s protective clothing used in conjunction with water spray will provide limited protection in outdoor releases for short-term exposure.

Handling and storage

Use proper personal protective equipment.
Skin protection is required . Neoprene or rubber gauntlet-type gloves
Use chemical (indirectly vented) goggles. A full-face shield is recommended in addition to goggles for added protection.
Use dedicated containers
