Incompatibilities
Strong oxidizing agents.

Fire.
Fire fighting
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. Use agent most appropriate to extinguish fire.
Hazards
Toxic vapors of diethanolamine and oxides nitrogen may form in fires.
Combustion products
Toxic vapors of diethanolamine and oxides nitrogen may form in fires.

Health.
Exposure effects
CNS depression progressing to coma, seizures, shock, and respiratory muscle paralysis has been reported.
   Ingestion
Vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain may occur. Ingestion of concentrated solutions may produce burns of the mouth, pharynx, and esophagus. Hemorrhagic gi tract necrosis and peritonitis have been reported.
   Inhalation
Respiratory muscle paralysis, pulmonary edema, occupational asthma, and hypoxemia have been reported.
   Skin
Dermal necrosis has resulted from exposure to cetrimonium bromide in concentrations ranging from 2 to 17.5 Percent. A number of these agents have caused irritant or allergic contact dermatitis.

First aid
 
   Ingestion
Consult a doctor if large amount was ingested.
   Inhalation
Move patient to fresh air. Monitor for respiratory distress. If cough or difficulty breathing develops, evaluate for respiratory tract irritation, bronchitis, or pneumonitis. Administer oxygen and assist ventilation as required. Treat bronchospasm with beta2 agonist and corticosteroid aerosols.
   Skin
Flush with water.
   Eyes
Wash well with water, consult a doctor if irritation persists.
