Give supplemental oxygen, if breathing is difficult. If breathing has stopped,    
assist ventilation with a mechanical device or use mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.  
First-aid Measures After Skin Contact: For skin contact flush with large amounts  
of water. Call a physician if irritation persists.                                
First-aid Measures After Eye Contact: Hold eyelids apart and immediately flush    
eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. After initial flushing, remove 
any contact lenses and continue flushing for at least 15 minutes. Call a physician
if irritation persists.                                                           
First-aid Measures After Ingestion: IF SWALLOWED: Immediately call a POISON CENTER
or doctor/physician. If swallowed, do NOT induce vomiting. Give a glass of water.

(fire). Keep containers in surrounding areas cool with water spray. As in any     
fire, wear pressure-demand self-contained breathing apparatus, MSHA/NIOSH         
(approved or equivalent) and full protective gear.
