Further medical treatment: Symptomatic treatment and supportive therapy as indicated.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing Media: Extinguish with carbon dioxide, dry chemical powder, foam or waterspray.
Fire/Explosion Hazard: Combustion or thermal decomposition will emit carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon monoxide. As with all dry powders, it is advisable to ground mechanical equipment in contact with dry material to dissipate the potential build-up of static electricity.
Fire Fighting Protective Equipment: Evacuate the area. Firefighters should use self-contained breathing equipment and protective clothing and gloves to avoid inhalation and contact with skin and eyes.
Other: Dike fire control water for later disposal. Disposal should be in accordance with local, state or national legislation. Contain effluent and prevent effluent from entering sewers and waterways. Contain the goods or any materials used in fire fighting.
