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. To extinguish fire use water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or chemical foam.

Exposure effects
May cause cancer according to animal studies. Prolonged or repeated exposure may cause lung irritation, chest pain, and pulmonary edema. May cause reproductive effects.
   Ingestion
May cause irritation of the digestive tract. May cause central nervous system effects.
   Inhalation
May cause allergic respiratory reaction. Inhalation of high concentrations may cause coughing and shortness of breath. Can produce delayed pulmonary edema.
   Skin
May cause skin sensitization, an allergic reaction, which becomes evident upon re-exposure to this material. May cause severe dermatitis and urticaria(hives).
   Eyes
May cause eye irritation.

First aid
 
   Ingestion
Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical aid immediately. Do NOT induce vomiting. If conscious and alert, rinse mouth and drink 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water.
   Inhalation
Remove from exposure to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid.
   Skin
Get medical aid immediately. Immediately flush skin with plenty of soap and water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes.
   Eyes
Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid.
