SECTION 4: FIRST AID MEASURES                                                     


4.1.  Description of First Aid Measures
First-aid Measures General: Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
If you feel unwell, seek medical advice (show the label where possible).          
First-aid Measures After Inhalation: If symptoms occur, go into fresh air and     
ventilate suspected area. Seek medical attention.                                 
First-aid Measures After Skin Contact: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash with    
soap and water followed by rinsing with water. Seek medical attention if          
irritation develops or persists. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse.         
First-aid Measures After Eye Contact: Rinse cautiously with water for at least 15 
minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing.      
Obtain medical attention if irritation develops or persists.                      
First-aid Measures After Ingestion: Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Seek     
medical attention.

4.3.  Indication of Any Immediate Medical Attention and Special Treatment
Needed
If exposed or concerned, get medical advice and attention. If ingested, may cause 
methemoglobenemia - emergency response should treat appropriately, such as by     
intravenous administration of methylene blue.                                     

SECTION 5: FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES                                                 

5.1.  Extinguishing Media
Suitable Extinguishing Media: Evacuate the area for 1 mile if ammonium nitrate is 
involved in a fire. Only water shall be used on ammonium nitrate fires. Dry       
chemical, foams, steam and smothering devices are not effective and can lead to   
possible explosion of the ammonium nitrate. General extinguishers may be used on  
fires not involving the ammonium nitrate such as conveyors, electrical equipment, 
tires, bearings, general plant equipment or the like when only minimal amounts of 
ammonium nitrate are present. For large fires use unmanned monitor nozzles if     
available.                                                                        
Unsuitable Extinguishing Media: Dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or regular foam.    


5.2.  Special Hazards Arising From the Substance or Mixture
Fire Hazard: May intensify fire; oxidizer. Will accelerate the burning of other   
combustibles, resulting in more rapid spread of fire.                             
Explosion Hazard: Heat may build pressure, rupturing closed containers, spreading 
fire and increasing risk of burns and injuries. Smothering, contact with organic  
material, or combustible material may cause an explosive situation.               
Reactivity: May cause or intensify fire; oxidizer. May accelerate the burning of  
other combustible materials. Smothering, contact with organic material, or        
combustible material may cause an explosive situation.                            


5.3.  Advice for Firefighters
Precautionary Measures Fire: If a fire has not reached the ammonium nitrate, cool 
the ammonium nitrate or container thereof to prevent the fire from reaching it.   
Ammonium nitrate does not burn by itself and thus needs to be kept separate from  
combustible materials. Ammonium nitrate is an oxidizer and will significantly     
increase the burning rate of combustible Materials. When in confinement and in the
presence of a strong detonation sources the material can explode when subject to  
sudden shock, pressure, or high temperatures. Avoid temperatures above 210 C (410 
F) which may cause thermal decomposition or explosion, especially in confined or  
poorly ventilated spaces. Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains 
or water courses.                                                                 
Firefighting Instructions: Evacuate the area for 1 mile if ammonium nitrate is    
involved in a fire. Only fires which are in the initial or beginning stage or     
those involving minimal amounts of ammonium nitrate in a manufacturing setting or 
in an area where ammonium nitrate is stored or in vehicles transporting ammonium  
nitrate should be attacked using manual fire extinguishing methods (fire          
extinguishers, hose streams, etc.) that require a human operator. If a fire in an 
area where ammonium nitrate is stored or in vehicles transporting ammonium nitrate
progresses beyond the incipient stage or involves the ammonium nitrate, evacuation
is required.                                                                      
Protection During Firefighting: Fire fighters downwind from a fire should wear    
selfcontained breathing apparatus. Fire fighters must use standard protective     
equipment including flame retardant coat, helmet with face shield, gloves and     
rubber boots.                                                                     

SECTION 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES                                            


6.1.  Personal Precautions, Protective Equipment and Emergency Procedures
General Measures: Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety    
practice. Avoid breathing (dust, vapor, mist, gas). Avoid getting in eyes or on   
skin. Keep away from combustible material.                                        


6.1.1.      For Non-emergency Personnel
Protective Equipment: Use appropriate personal protection equipment (PPE).        
Emergency Procedures: Evacuate unnecessary personnel.                             


6.1.2.      For Emergency Responders
Protective Equipment: Use appropriate personal protection equipment (PPE).        
Emergency Procedures: Ventilate area.                                             


6.2.  Environmental Precautions
Prevent entry to sewers and public waters.                                        


6.3.  Methods and Material for Containment and Cleaning Up
For Containment: Avoid generation of dust during clean-up of spills. Use a broom  
for small spills do not mix with other materials.                                 
Methods for Cleaning Up: Collect spillage for possible reuse. Clean up spills     
immediately and dispose of waste safely. Contact competent authorities after a    
spill. Do not take up in combustible material such as: saw dust or cellulosic     
material.                                                                         


6.4.  Reference to Other Sections

SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE                                                   


7.1.  Precautions for Safe Handling
Additional Hazards When Processed: When heated to decomposition, emits toxic      
fumes. Smothering, contact with organic material, or combustible material in a    
fire situation may be an explosive situation. Do not puncture or incinerate       
container.                                                                        
Hygiene Measures: Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety    
procedures. Wash hands and other exposed areas with mild soap and water before    
eating, drinking, or smoking and again when leaving work.                         


7.2.  Conditions for Safe Storage, Including Any Incompatibilities
Technical Measures: Comply with applicable regulations 29 CFR 1910.109(i).        
Storage Conditions: Store in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place. Keep container
closed when not in use. Keep/Store away from combustible materials, ignition
