SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
RESIST RUSHING IN!
APPROACH CAUTIOUSLY FROM UPWIND, UPHILL OR UPSTREAM:
• Stay clear of Vapor, Fumes, Smoke and Spills
• Keep vehicle at a safe distance from the scene
SECURE THE SCENE:
• Isolate the area and protect yourself and others
IDENTIFY THE HAZARDS USING ANY OF THE FOLLOWING:
• Placards
• Container labels
• Shipping documents
• Rail Car and Road Trailer Identification Chart
• Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS)
• Knowledge of persons on scene
• Consult applicable guide page
ASSESS THE SITUATION:
• Is there a fire, a spill or a leak?
• What are the weather conditions?
• What is the terrain like?
• Who/what is at risk: people, property or the environment?
• What actions should be taken – evacuation, shelter in-place or dike?
• What resources (human and equipment) are required?
• What can be done immediately?
OBTAIN HELP:
• Advise your headquarters to notify responsible agencies and call for assistance from
qualified personnel
RESPOND:
• Enter only when wearing appropriate protective gear
• Rescue attempts and protecting property must be weighed against you becoming
part of the problem
• Establish a command post and lines of communication
• Continually reassess the situation and modify response accordingly
• Consider safety of people in the immediate area first, including your own safety
ABOVE ALL: Do not assume that gases or vapors are harmless because of lack of a smell—
odorless gases or vapors may be harmful. Use CAUTION when handling empty containers
because they may still present hazards until they are cleaned and purged of all residues.

HAZARD CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM
The hazard class of dangerous goods is indicated either by its class (or division) number or name.
Placards are used to identify the class or division of a material. The hazard class or division number
must be displayed in the lower corner of a placard and is required for both primary and subsidiary hazard
classes and divisions, if applicable. For other than Class 7 or the OXYGEN placard, text indicating a
hazard (for example, “CORROSIVE”) is not required. Text is shown only in the U.S. The hazard class
or division number and subsidiary hazard classes or division numbers placed in parentheses (when
applicable), must appear on the shipping document after each proper shipping name.

INTRODUCTION TO THE TABLE OF PLACARDS
USE THE TABLE OF PLACARDS ONLY WHEN THE ID NUMBER OR PROPER SHIPPING
NAME IS NOT AVAILABLE.
The next two pages display the placards used on transport vehicles carrying dangerous
goods with the applicable reference GUIDE circled. Follow these steps:
1. Approach scene from upwind, uphill or upstream at a safe distance to safely
identify and/or read the placard or orange panel. Use binoculars if available.
2. Match the vehicle placard(s) with one of the placards displayed on the next
two pages.
3. Consult the circled guide number associated with the placard. Use that guide
information for now. For example:
4.
5.
6.
7.
• Use GUIDE
for a FLAMMABLE (Class 3) placard
• Use GUIDE
for a CORROSIVE (Class 8) placard
• Use GUIDE
when the DANGER/DANGEROUS placard is displayed or the
nature of the spilled, leaking or burning material is not known. Also use this GUIDE
when the presence of dangerous goods is suspected but no placards can be seen.
If multiple placards point to more than one guide, initially use the most conservative
guide (i.e., the guide requiring the greatest degree of protective actions).
Guides associated with the placards provide the most significant risk and/or
hazard information.
When specific information, such as ID number or proper shipping name, becomes
available, the more specific Guide recommended for that material must be
consulted.
Asterisks (*) on orange placards represent explosives “Compatibility Group”
letters; refer to the Glossary (page 375).
Double asterisks (**) on orange placards represent the division of the explosive.

RAIL CAR IDENTIFICATION CHART*
CAUTION: Emergency response personnel must be aware that rail tank cars vary widely
in construction, fittings and purpose. Tank cars could transport products that may be solids,
liquids or gases. The products may be under pressure. It is essential that products be
identified by consulting shipping documents or train consist or contacting dispatch centers
before emergency response is initiated.
The information stenciled on the sides or ends of tank cars, as illustrated above, may be
used to identify the product utilizing:
a. the commodity name shown; or
b. the other information shown, especially reporting marks and car number which, when
supplied to a dispatch center, will facilitate the identification of the product.
*
The recommended guides should be considered as last resort if the material
cannot be identified by any other means.
Page 8
ROAD TRAILER IDENTIFICATION CHART*
CAUTION: This chart depicts only the most general shapes of road trailers. Emergency
response personnel must be aware that there are many variations of road trailers, not
illustrated above, that are used for shipping chemical products. The suggested guides are
for the most hazardous products that may be transported in these trailer types.
*
The recommended guides should be considered as last resort if the material
cannot be identified by any other means.

HAZARD IDENTIFICATION NUMBERS
DISPLAYED ON SOME INTERMODAL CONTAINERS
Hazard identification numbers utilized under European and some South American regulations,
may be found in the top half of an orange panel on some intermodal bulk containers. The
United Nations 4-digit identification number is in the bottom half of the orange panel.
33
1203
The hazard identification number in the top half of the orange panel consists of two or
three digits. In general, the digits indicate the following hazards:
2 - Emission of gas due to pressure or chemical reaction
3 - Flammability of liquids (vapors) and gases or self-heating liquid
4 - Flammability of solids or self-heating solid
5 - Oxidizing (fire-intensifying) effect
6 - Toxicity or risk of infection
7 - Radioactivity
8 - Corrosivity
9 - Risk of spontaneous violent reaction
NOTE: The risk of spontaneous violent reaction within the meaning of digit 9 include
the possibility, due to the nature of a substance, of a risk of explosion,
disintegration and polymerization reaction followed by the release of considerable
heat or flammable and/or toxic gases.
• Doubling of a digit indicates an intensification of that particular hazard (i.e., 33,
66, 88).
• Where the hazard associated with a substance can be adequately indicated by a
single digit, the digit is followed by a zero (i.e., 30, 40, 50).
• A hazard identification number prefixed by the letter “X” indicates that the
substance will react dangerously with water (i.e., X88).

PIPELINE TRANSPORTATION
In North America, hazardous materials are transported through millions of miles of underground
pipelines and related structures that can contain natural gas, natural gas liquids, crude oil,
gasoline, diesel fuel, anhydrous ammonia, carbon dioxide, jet fuel and other commodities.
Although pipelines are buried, there are above-ground structures and signs indicating the
presence of underground transmission pipelines (see page 19 for U.S. pipeline location
information). Natural gas also is transported via underground distribution pipelines.
Gas Pipelines
Natural Gas Transmission Pipelines
Large-diameter, steel pipelines transporting
flammable, toxic and non-toxic natural gas at very
high pressure.
Structures: Compressor Station Buildings, Valves,
Metering Stations, and Aerial Patrol Markers.
Markers: “Warning, Caution, or Danger” appear at
road, railroad, and water crossings, or may be posted
at property boundaries and include operator’s
emergency Point-of-Contact (POC) and product
transported.
Natural Gas Distribution Pipelines
Natural gas is delivered directly to customers via distribution pipelines--typically smaller diameter, lower-pressure pipelines, and can be steel, plastic, or cast iron.
Structures: Regulator stations, customer meters and regulators, and valve box covers are
the only above-ground indicators of gas distribution pipelines.
Gas Gathering and Gas Well Production Pipelines
Gas gathering/gas well production pipelines collect “raw” natural gas from wellheads and
transport product to gas-processing and/or gas-treating plants. These gathering pipelines
carry natural gas mixed with some level of gas liquids, water and, in some areas,
contaminants such as hydrogen sulfide (H2S).
Structures – Compressor Station Buildings, Valves, Metering Stations, and Aerial
Patrol Markers.
Page 14
Markers – Often appear at road, railroad,
and water crossings. Signs may be posted
at property boundaries. Signs include
operator’s POC and product transported.
Warning, Caution, or Danger will appear
on signs.
Note: Pipelines transporting natural gas
containing dangerous levels of H2S may
have signs that say: “Sour Gas” or
“Poison Gas”.
For Natural Gas Pipeline Incidents
Two important things to remember:
• Never attempt to extinguish a gas fire; this could prolong/worsen incident/cause
another leak in the pipeline.
• Never attempt to operate pipeline valves; this could prolong/worsen incident/cause
another leak in the pipeline.
SIGNS OF GAS PIPELINE RUPTURE:
• Loud roaring or explosive sound; OR
• Large flames and loud roaring noise.
Follow these steps:
• Immediately evacuate area;
• Move upwind, away from flames; prevent individuals from entering;
• If no flames present, do not start/turn off vehicles/electrical equipment (ex: cell phones,
pagers, two-way radios, or lights) as this could cause spark/ignition;
• Abandon equipment used in/near area;
• If flames present, driving away from area is acceptable;
• Move far enough from noise to allow normal conversation;
• From safe location, call 911 or contact the local fire/law enforcement; and
• Notify pipeline operator.
Page 15
ANY ONE OF THESE COULD INDICATE A SUSPECTED GAS PIPELINE LEAK:
• Whistling/hissing sound;
• Distinctive, strong odor, similar to rotten eggs;
• Dense fog, mist, or white cloud;
• Bubbling in water, ponds, or creeks;
• Dust or dirt blowing up from ground; OR
• Discolored/dead vegetation above pipeline right-of-way.
Follow these steps:
• Evacuate area to where you can no longer hear, see, or smell gas;
• Do not start/turn off vehicles/electrical equipment (ex: cell phones, pagers, two-way
radios or lights) as this could cause spark/ignition;
• Abandon equipment used in/near the area;
• Avoid open flames;
• Prevent individuals from entering area;
• Call 911 or contact the local fire/law enforcement from a safe location; and
• Notify pipeline operator.
Considerations for Establishing Protective Action Distance:
• Type of product (eg. sour vs sweet);
• Pressure and diameter of pipe;
• Timing of valve closure by utility (quickly for automated valves/longer for manually
operated valves);
• Dissipation time of gas in pipe once valves are closed;
• Heat factor of natural gas;
• Local variables such as climate/weather, wind direction, topography, population density,
demographics, and fire suppression methods available;
• Nearby building construction material/density;
• Wild land/urban interface; and
• Natural and manmade barriers (highway).
If you know the material involved, identify the three-digit guide number by looking up the
name in the alphabetical list (blue-bordered pages), then using the three-digit guide number,
consult the recommendations in the assigned guide.
Page 16
Liquids Pipelines
Petroleum and Hazardous Liquids Pipelines
Crude oil, refined petroleum products, and hazardous
liquids often are transported by pipelines and include
gasoline, jet fuels, diesel fuel, home heating oils,
carbon dioxide and anhydrous ammonia. Sometimes
liquids pipelines transport natural gas liquids, which,
like carbon dioxide and anhydrous ammonia, rapidly
change from liquid to gaseous state when released
from a pressurized pipeline.
Structures – Storage Tanks, Valves, Pump Stations,
Aerial Patrol Markers
Markers – Often appear at road, railroad and water crossings, and may be posted at
property boundaries. Signs include operator emergency POCs and product transported.
Warning, Caution, or Danger appear on signs.
For Petroleum and Hazardous Liquids Pipeline Incidents
Two important things to remember:
• Never attempt to extinguish flame before shutting off supply, as this can cause
formation of explosive mixtures, and
• Never attempt to operate pipeline valves. This could prolong/worsen incident–or
cause another pipeline leak.
SIGNS OF LIQUIDS PIPELINE RUPTURE:
• Loud roaring, hissing, or explosive sound; OR
• Very large flames and loud roaring noise.
Follow these steps:
• Immediately evacuate area;
• Move upwind, far from flames, prevent individuals from entering area;
• If no flames present, do not start/turn off vehicles/electrical equipment (ex: cell phones,
pagers, two-way radios, or lights) as this could cause spark/ignition;
• Abandon equipment used in/near the area;
• Keep traffic away; secure the area;
Page 17
•
•
•
•
If flames present, driving away from area is acceptable;
Move far enough away from noise to allow normal conversation;
From safe location, call 911 or contact the local fire/law enforcement; and
From a safe area, call toll-free emergency number on right-of-way marker to notify
pipeline operator.
ANY ONE OF THESE COULD INDICATE SUSPECTED LIQUIDS PIPELINE LEAK:
• Liquids bubbling up from ground;
• “Oil slick” on flowing/standing water;
• Flames appearing from ground;
• Vapor clouds;
• Discolored vegetation or snow; and
• Unusual petroleum, skunk or rotten-egg odor.
Follow these steps:
• Do not drive into vapor cloud;
• Carefully evacuate the immediate area so you can no longer hear, see, smell odor;
• Avoid introducing sources of ignition--do not start/turn off vehicles/electrical equipment
(ex: cell phones, pagers, two-way radios, or lights); as this could cause spark/ignition;
• Abandon equipment being used in/near area;
• Avoid open flames;
• Prevent individuals from entering area;
• Call 911 or contact the local fire/law enforcement from a safe location; and
• Notify pipeline operator.
Considerations For Establishing Protective Action Distance:
• Type of product (eg. sour vs sweet);
• Pressure/diameter of pipe;
• Timing of valve closure by utility (quickly for automated valves/longer for manually
operated valves);
• Dissipation time of material in pipe once valves closed;
• Heat factor of product;
• Local variables such as climate/weather, wind direction, topography, population density,
demographics and fire suppression methods available for use;
Page 18
• Nearby building construction material/density;
• Wild land/urban interface; and
• Natural and man-made barriers (highway).

GREEN HIGHLIGHTED ENTRIES IN YELLOW PAGES
For entries highlighted in green follow these steps:
• IF THERE IS NO FIRE:
-- Go directly to Table 1 (green bordered pages)
-- Look up the ID number and name of material
-- Identify initial isolation and protective action distances
• IF THERE IS A FIRE or A FIRE IS INVOLVED:
-- Also consult the assigned orange guide
-- If applicable, apply the evacuation information shown under
PUBLIC SAFETY
Note: If the name in Table 1 is shown with “When Spilled In Water”, these materials
produce large amounts of Toxic Inhalation Hazard (TIH) gases when spilled
in water. Some Water Reactive materials are also TIH materials themselves
(e.g., Bromine trifluoride (1746), Thionyl chloride (1836), etc.). In these instances,
two entries are provided in Table 1 for land-based and water-based spills. If the
Water Reactive material is NOT a TIH and this material is NOT spilled in water,
Table 1 and Table 2 do not apply and safety distances will be found within the
appropriate orange guide.

GREEN HIGHLIGHTED ENTRIES IN BLUE PAGES
For entries highlighted in green follow these steps:
• IF THERE IS NO FIRE:
-- Go directly to Table 1 (green bordered pages)
-- Look up the ID number and name of material
-- Identify initial isolation and protective action distances
• IF THERE IS A FIRE or A FIRE IS INVOLVED:
-- Also consult the assigned orange guide
-- If applicable, apply the evacuation information shown under
PUBLIC SAFETY
Note: If the name in Table 1 is shown with “When Spilled In Water”, these materials produce
large amounts of Toxic Inhalation Hazard (TIH) gases when spilled in water. Some
Water Reactive materials are also TIH materials themselves (e.g., Bromine trifluoride
(1746), Thionyl chloride (1836), etc.). In these instances, two entries are provided in
Table 1 for land-based and water-based spills. If the Water Reactive material is NOT
a TIH and this material is NOT spilled in water, Table 1 and Table 2 do not apply and
safety distances will be found within the appropriate orange guide.

POTENTIAL HAZARDS
FIRE OR EXPLOSION
• HIGHLY FLAMMABLE: Will be easily ignited by heat, sparks or flames.
• Vapors form explosive mixtures with air: indoors, outdoors and sewers explosion hazards.
• Most vapors are heavier than air. They will spread along ground and collect in low or confined areas
(sewers, basements, tanks).
• Vapors may travel to source of ignition and flash back.
• Those substances designated with a (P) may polymerize explosively when heated or involved in a fire.
• Substance will react with water (some violently) releasing flammable, toxic or corrosive gases and runoff.
• Contact with metals may evolve flammable hydrogen gas.
• Containers may explode when heated or if contaminated with water.
HEALTH
• TOXIC; inhalation, ingestion or contact (skin, eyes) with vapors, dusts or substance may cause severe
injury, burns or death.
• Bromoacetates and chloroacetates are extremely irritating/lachrymators.
• Reaction with water or moist air will release toxic, corrosive or flammable gases.
• Reaction with water may generate much heat that will increase the concentration of fumes in the air.
• Fire will produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases.
• Runoff from fire control or dilution water may be corrosive and/or toxic and cause pollution.
PUBLIC SAFETY
• CALL EMERGENCY RESPONSE Telephone Number on Shipping Paper first. If Shipping Paper not
available or no answer, refer to appropriate telephone number listed on the inside back cover.

• Low radiation hazard when material is inside container. If material is released from package or bulk
container, hazard will vary from low to moderate. Level of hazard will depend on the type and amount of
radioactivity, the kind of material it is in, and/or the surfaces it is on.
• Some material may be released from packages during accidents of moderate severity but risks to people
are not great.
• Released radioactive materials or contaminated objects usually will be visible if packaging fails.
• Some exclusive use shipments of bulk and packaged materials will not have “RADIOACTIVE” labels. Placards, markings and shipping papers provide identification.
• Some packages may have a “RADIOACTIVE” label and a second hazard label. The second hazard is
usually greater than the radiation hazard; so follow this GUIDE as well as the response GUIDE for the
second hazard class label.
• Some radioactive materials cannot be detected by commonly available instruments.
• Runoff from control of cargo fire may cause low-level pollution.
FIRE OR EXPLOSION
• Some of these materials may burn, but most do not ignite readily.
• Uranium and Thorium metal cuttings may ignite spontaneously if exposed to air (see GUIDE 136).
• Nitrates are oxidizers and may ignite other combustibles (see GUIDE 141).
PUBLIC SAFETY
• CALL EMERGENCY RESPONSE Telephone Number on Shipping Paper first. If Shipping Paper not
available or no answer, refer to appropriate telephone number listed on the inside back cover.
• Priorities for rescue, life-saving, first aid, fire control and other hazards are higher than the
priority for measuring radiation levels.
• Radiation Authority must be notified of accident conditions. Radiation Authority is usually responsible for decisions about radiological consequences and closure of emergencies.
• As an immediate precautionary measure, isolate spill or leak area for at least 25 meters (75 feet) in all
directions.
• Stay upwind.
• Keep unauthorized personnel away.
• Detain or isolate uninjured persons or equipment suspected to be contaminated; delay decontamination
and cleanup until instructions are received from Radiation Authority.
PROTECTIVE CLOTHING
• Positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and structural firefighters’ protective
clothing will provide adequate protection.
EVACUATION
Large Spill
• Consider initial downwind evacuation for at least 100 meters (330 feet).

packages are damaged in moderately severe accidents.
• Type B packages, and the rarely occurring Type C packages, (large and small, usually metal) contain
the most hazardous amounts. They can be identified by package markings or by shipping papers. Life
threatening conditions may exist only if contents are released or package shielding fails. Because of
design, evaluation and testing of packages, these conditions would be expected only for accidents of
utmost severity.
• The rarely occurring "Special Arrangement" shipments may be of Type A, Type B or Type C packages.
Package type will be marked on packages, and shipment details will be on shipping papers.

releases and to prevent a fission chain reaction under severe transport conditions.
• Type B(U)F, B(M)F and CF packages (identified by markings on packages or shipping papers) contain
potentially life endangering amounts. Because of design, evaluation and testing of packages, fission
chain reactions are prevented and releases are not expected to be life endangering for all accidents
except those of utmost severity.
• The rarely occurring "Special Arrangement" shipments may be of Type AF, BF or CF packages. Package
type will be marked on packages, and shipment details will be on shipping papers.
• The transport index (TI) shown on labels or a shipping paper might not indicate the radiation level at one
meter from a single, isolated, undamaged package; instead, it might relate to controls needed during
transport because of the fissile properties of the materials. Alternatively, the fissile nature of the contents
may be indicated by a criticality safety index (CSI) on a special FISSILE label or on the shipping paper.

INTRODUCTION TO GREEN TABLES - INITIAL ISOLATION
AND PROTECTIVE ACTION DISTANCES
Table 1 - Initial Isolation and Protective Action Distances suggests distances useful to protect
people from vapors resulting from spills involving dangerous goods that are considered toxic by
inhalation (TIH). This list includes certain chemical warfare agents and materials that produce
toxic gases upon contact with water. Table 1 provides first responders with initial guidance until
technically qualified emergency response personnel are available.
The Initial Isolation Zone defines an area SURROUNDING the incident in which persons may be
exposed to dangerous (upwind) and life threatening (downwind) concentrations of material. The
Protective Action Zone defines an area DOWNWIND from the incident in which persons may
become incapacitated and unable to take protective action and/or incur serious or irreversible
health effects. Table 1 provides specific guidance for small and large spills occurring day or night.
Adjusting distances for a specific incident involves many interdependent variables and should
be made only by personnel technically qualified to make such adjustments. For this reason,
no precise guidance can be provided in this document to aid in adjusting the table distances;
however, general guidance follows.
Factors That May Change the Protective Action Distances
The orange-bordered guide for a material clearly indicates under the section EVACUATION
– Fire, the evacuation distance required to protect against fragmentation hazard of a large
container. If the material becomes involved in a FIRE, the toxic hazard may be less than the
fire or explosion hazard. In these cases, the Fire hazard distance should be used.
Initial isolation and protective action distances in this guidebook are derived from historical
data on transportation incidents and the use of statistical models. For worst-case scenarios
involving the instantaneous release of the entire contents of a package (e.g., as a result of
terrorism, sabotage or catastrophic accident) the distances may increase substantially. For
such events, doubling of the initial isolation and protective action distances is appropriate in
absence of other information.
If more than one tank car containing TIH materials involved in the incident is leaking, LARGE
SPILL distances may need to be increased.
For a material with a protective action distance of 11.0+ km (7.0+ miles), the actual distance can
be larger in certain atmospheric conditions. If the dangerous goods vapor plume is channeled
in a valley or between many tall buildings, distances may be larger than shown in Table 1 due
to less mixing of the plume with the atmosphere. Daytime spills in regions with known strong
inversions or snow cover, or occurring near sunset, may require an increase of the protective
action distance because airborne contaminants mix and disperse more slowly and may travel
much farther downwind. In such cases, the nighttime protective action distance may be more
appropriate. In addition, protective action distances may be larger for liquid spills when either
the material or outdoor temperature exceeds 30°C (86°F).
Page 285
Materials which react with water to produce large amounts of toxic gases are included in Table
1 - Initial Isolation and Protective Action Distances. Note that some water-reactive materials
(WRM) which are also TIH (e.g., Bromine trifluoride (1746), Thionyl chloride (1836), etc.) produce
additional TIH materials when spilled in water. For these materials, two entries are provided in
Table 1 - Initial Isolation and Protective Action Distances (i.e., for spills on land and for spills
in water). If it is not clear whether the spill is on land or in water, or in cases where the
spill occurs both on land and in water, choose the larger Protective Action Distance.
Following Table 1, Table 2 – Water-Reactive Materials Which Produce Toxic Gases lists materials
that produce large amounts of Toxic Inhalation Hazard gases (TIH) when spilled in water as
well as the toxic gases that are produced when spilled in water.
When a water-reactive TIH producing material is spilled into a river or stream, the source of
the toxic gas may move with the current and stretch from the spill point downstream for a
substantial distance.
Finally, Table 3 lists Initial Isolation and Protective Action Distances for Toxic Inhalation Hazard
materials that may be more commonly encountered.
The selected materials are:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Ammonia, anhydrous (UN1005)
Chlorine (UN1017)
Ethylene oxide (UN1040)
Hydrogen chloride (UN1050) and Hydrogen chloride, refrigerated liquid (UN2186)
Hydrogen fluoride (UN1052)
Sulfur dioxide/Sulphur dioxide (UN1079)
The materials are presented in alphabetical order and provide Initial Isolation and Protective
Action Distances for large spills (more than 208 liters or 55 US gallons) involving different
container types (therefore different volume capacities) for day time and night time situations
and for different wind speeds.
Page 286
PROTECTIVE ACTION DECISION FACTORS TO CONSIDER
The choice of protective actions for a given situation depends on a number of factors. For some
cases, evacuation may be the best option; in others, sheltering in-place may be the best course.
Sometimes, these two actions may be used in combination. In any emergency, officials need to
quickly give the public instructions. The public will need continuing information and instructions
while being evacuated or sheltered in-place.
Proper evaluation of the factors listed below will determine the effectiveness of evacuation or
in-place protection (shelter in-place). The importance of these factors can vary with emergency
conditions. In specific emergencies, other factors may need to be identified and considered
as well. This list indicates what kind of information may be needed to make the initial decision.

PROTECTIVE ACTIONS
Protective Actions are those steps taken to preserve the health and safety of emergency
responders and the public during an incident involving releases of dangerous goods. Table
1 - Initial Isolation and Protective Action Distances (green-bordered pages) predicts the size of
downwind areas which could be affected by a cloud of toxic gas. People in this area should be
evacuated and/or sheltered in-place inside buildings.
Isolate Hazard Area and Deny Entry means to keep everybody away from the area if they are
not directly involved in emergency response operations. Unprotected emergency responders
should not be allowed to enter the isolation zone. This “isolation” task is done first to establish
control over the area of operations. This is the first step for any protective actions that may
follow. See Table 1 - Initial Isolation and Protective Action Distances (green-bordered pages)
for more detailed information on specific materials.
Evacuate means to move all people from a threatened area to a safer place. To perform an
evacuation, there must be enough time for people to be warned, to get ready, and to leave an
area. If there is enough time, evacuation is the best protective action. Begin evacuating people
nearby and those outdoors in direct view of the scene. When additional help arrives, expand
the area to be evacuated downwind and crosswind to at least the extent recommended in this
guidebook. Even after people move to the distances recommended, they may not be completely
safe from harm. They should not be permitted to congregate at such distances. Send evacuees
to a definite place, by a specific route, far enough away so they will not have to be moved again
if the wind shifts.
Shelter In-Placemeans people should seek shelter inside a building and remain inside until
the danger passes. Sheltering in-place is used when evacuating the public would cause
greater risk than staying where they are, or when an evacuation cannot be performed.
Direct the people inside to close all doors and windows and to shut off all ventilating,
heating and cooling systems. In-place protection (shelter in-place) may not be the best
option if (a) the vapors are flammable; (b) if it will take a long time for the gas to clear the area;
or (c) if buildings cannot be closed tightly. Vehicles can offer some protection for a short period
if the windows are closed and the ventilating systems are shut off. Vehicles are not as effective
as buildings for in-place protection.
It is vital to maintain communications with competent persons inside the building so that
they are advised about changing conditions. Persons protected-in-place should be warned
to stay far from windows because of the danger from glass and projected metal fragments
in a fire and/or explosion.
Every dangerous goods incident is different. Each will have special problems and concerns.
Action to protect the public must be selected carefully. These pages can help with initial
decisions on how to protect the public. Officials must continue to gather information and monitor
the situation until the threat is removed.

BACKGROUND ON TABLE 1 - INITIAL ISOLATION
AND PROTECTIVE ACTION DISTANCES
Initial Isolation and Protective Action Distances in this guidebook were determined for
small and large spills occurring during day or night. The overall analysis was statistical in
nature and utilized state-of-the-art emission rate and dispersion models; statistical release
data from the U.S. DOT HMIS (Hazardous Materials Information System) database;
meteorological observations from over 120 locations in United States, Canada and Mexico; and
the most current toxicological exposure guidelines.
For each chemical, thousands of hypothetical releases were modeled to account for the statistical
variation in both release amount and atmospheric conditions. Based on this statistical sample,
the 90th percentile Protective Action Distance for each chemical and category was selected
to appear in the Table. A brief description of the analysis is provided below. A detailed report
outlining the methodology and data used in the generation of the Initial Isolation and Protective
Action Distances may be obtained from the U.S. Department of Transportation, Pipeline and
Hazardous Materials Safety Administration.
Release amounts and emission rates into the atmosphere were statistically modeled based
on (1) data from the U.S. DOT HMIS database; (2) container types and sizes authorized for
transport as specified in 49 CFR §172.101 and Part 173; (3) physical properties of the individual
materials, and (4) atmospheric data from a historical database. The emission model calculated
the release of vapor due to evaporation of pools on the ground, direct release of vapors from
the container, or a combination of both, as would occur for liquefied gases which can flash to
form both a vapor/aerosol mixture and an evaporating pool. In addition, the emission model also
calculated the emission of toxic vapor by-products generated from spilling water-reactive materials
in water. Spills that involve releases of approximately 208 liters for liquids (55 US gallons) and
300 kg for solids (660 pounds) or less are considered Small Spills, while spills that involve greater
quantities are considered Large Spills. An exception to this is certain chemical warfare agents
where Small Spills include releases up to 2 kg (4.4 lbs), and Large Spills include releases up to
25 kg (55 lbs). These agents are BZ, CX, GA, GB, GD, GF, HD, HL, HN1, HN2, HN3, L and VX.
Downwind dispersion of the vapor was estimated for each case modeled. Atmospheric
parameters affecting the dispersion, and the emission rate, were selected in a statistical fashion
from a database containing hourly meteorological data from 120 cities in the United States,
Canada and Mexico. The dispersion calculation accounted for the time dependent emission
rate from the source as well as the density of the vapor plume (i.e., heavy gas effects). Since
atmospheric mixing is less effective at dispersing vapor plumes during nighttime, day and night
were separated in the analysis. In Table 1, “Day” refers to time periods after sunrise and before
sunset, while “Night” includes all hours between sunset and sunrise.
Toxicological short-term exposure guidelines for the materials were applied to
determine the downwind distance to which persons may become incapacitated and unable
to take protective action or may incur serious health effects after a once-in-a-lifetime,
or rare, exposure. When available, toxicological exposure guidelines were chosen from AEGL-2
or ERPG-2 emergency response guidelines, with AEGL-2 values being the first choice. For
materials that do not have AEGL-2 or ERPG-2 values, emergency response guidelines
estimated from lethal concentration limits derived from animal studies were used, as
recommended by an independent panel of toxicological experts from industry and academia.

HOW TO USE TABLE 1 - INITIAL ISOLATION AND
PROTECTIVE ACTION DISTANCES
(1) The responder should already have:
• Identified the material by its ID Number and Name; (if an ID Number cannot be found,
use the Name of Material index in the blue-bordered pages to locate that number.)
• Found the three-digit guide for that material in order to consult the emergency
actions recommended jointly with this table;
• Noted the wind direction.
(2) Look in Table 1 (the green-bordered pages) for the ID Number and Name of the Material
involved in the incident. Some ID Numbers have more than one shipping name listed—
look for the specific name of the material. (If the shipping name is not known and Table
1 lists more than one name for the same ID Number, use the entry with the largest
protective action distances.)
(3) Determine if the incident involves a SMALL or LARGE spill and if DAY or NIGHT.
Generally, a SMALL SPILL is one which involves a single, small package (e.g., a drum
containing up to approximately 208 liters (55 US gallons)), a small cylinder, or a small
leak from a large package. A LARGE SPILL is one which involves a spill from a large
package, or multiple spills from many small packages. DAY is any time after sunrise
and before sunset. NIGHT is any time between sunset and sunrise.
Initial Isolation
Zone
(4) Look up the initial ISOLATION distance.
Direct all persons to move, in a crosswind
direction, away from the spill to the distance
specified—in meters and feet.
Initial Isolation
Distance
Spill
(5) Look up the initial PROTECTIVE ACTION DISTANCE shown in Table 1. For a given
material, spill size, and whether day or night, Table 1 gives the downwind distance—in
kilometers and miles— for which protective actions should be considered. For practical
purposes, the Protective Action Zone (i.e., the area in which people are at risk of harmful
exposure) is a square, whose length and width are the same as the downwind distance
shown in Table 1.
Page 290
(6) Initiate Protective Actions to the extent possible, beginning with those closest to
the spill site and working away from the site in the downwind direction. When a water-reactive
TIH producing material is spilled into a river or stream, the source of the toxic gas may
move with the current or stretch from the spill point downstream for a substantial distance.
The shape of the area in which protective actions should be taken (the Protective
Action Zone) is shown in this figure. The spill is located at the center of the small
circle. The larger circle represents the INITIAL ISOLATION zone around the spill.

HOW TO USE TABLE 2 – WATER-REACTIVE MATERIALS
WHICH PRODUCE TOXIC GASES
Table 2 lists materials which produce large amounts of Toxic Inhalation Hazard (TIH) gases
when spilled in water and identifies the TIH gases produced.
The materials are listed by ID number order.
These Water Reactive materials are easily identified in Table 1 as their name is immediately
followed by (when spilled in water).
Note: Some Water Reactive materials are also TIH materials themselves
(e.g., Bromine trifluoride (1746), Thionyl chloride (1836), etc.). In these instances,
two entries are provided in Table 1 for land-based and water-based spills.
If the Water Reactive material is NOT a TIH and this material is NOT spilled in
water, Table 1 and Table 2 do not apply and safety distances will be found
within the appropriate orange guide.

ERG2012 USER’S GUIDE
The 2012 Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG2012) was developed jointly by Transport
Canada (TC), the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), the Secretariat of Transport
and Communications of Mexico (SCT) and with the collaboration of CIQUIME (Centro de
Información Química para Emergencias) of Argentina, for use by fire fighters, police, and other
emergency services personnel who may be the first to arrive at the scene of a transportation
incident involving dangerous goods. It is primarily a guide to aid first responders in quickly
identifying the specific or generic hazards of the material(s) involved in the incident,
and protecting themselves and the general public during the initial response phase of
the incident. For the purposes of this guidebook, the “initial response phase” is that period
following arrival at the scene of an incident during which the presence and/or identification
of dangerous goods is confirmed, protective actions and area securement are initiated, and
assistance of qualified personnel is requested. It is not intended to provide information on
the physical or chemical properties of dangerous goods.
This guidebook will assist responders in making initial decisions upon arriving at the scene
of a dangerous goods incident. It should not be considered as a substitute for emergency
response training, knowledge or sound judgment. ERG2012 does not address all possible
circumstances that may be associated with a dangerous goods incident. It is primarily
designed for use at a dangerous goods incident occurring on a highway or railroad. Be
mindful that there may be limited value in its application at fixed facility locations.
ERG2012 incorporates dangerous goods lists from the most recent United Nations
Recommendations as well as from other international and national regulations. Explosives
are not listed individually by either proper shipping name or ID Number. They do, however,
appear under the general heading “Explosives” on the first page of the ID Number index
(yellow-bordered pages) and alphabetically in the Name of Material index (blue-bordered
pages). Also, the letter (P) following the guide number in the yellow-bordered and bluebordered pages identifies those materials which present a polymerization hazard under
certain conditions, for example: Acrolein, stabilized 131P.
First responders at the scene of a dangerous goods incident should seek additional specific
information about any material in question as soon as possible. The information received
by contacting the appropriate emergency response agency, by calling the emergency
response telephone number on the shipping document, or by consulting the information
on or accompanying the shipping document, may be more specific and accurate than this
guidebook in providing guidance for the materials involved.
BEFORE AN EMERGENCY – BECOME FAMILIAR WITH THIS GUIDEBOOK! In the
U.S., according to the requirements of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety
and Health Administration (OSHA, 29 CFR 1910.120), and regulations issued by the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA, 40 CFR Part 311), first responders must be trained
regarding the use of this guidebook.

3-Orange-bordered pages: This section is the most important section of the guidebook
because it is where all safety recommendations are provided. It comprises a total
of 62 individual guides, presented in a two-page format. Each guide provides safety
recommendations and emergency response information to protect yourself and the public.
The left hand page provides safety related information whereas the right hand page provides
emergency response guidance and activities for fire situations, spill or leak incidents and first
aid. Each guide is designed to cover a group of materials which possess similar chemical
and toxicological characteristics.
The guide title identifies the general hazards of the dangerous goods covered.
For example: GUIDE 124 - Gases-Toxic and/or Corrosive-Oxidizing.
Each guide is divided into three main sections: the first section describes potential hazards
that the material may display in terms of fire/explosion and health effects upon exposure.
The highest potential is listed first. The emergency responder should consult this section
first. This allows the responder to make decisions regarding the protection of the emergency
response team as well as the surrounding population.
The second section outlines suggested public safety measures based on the situation at
hand. It provides general information regarding immediate isolation of the incident site,
recommended type of protective clothing and respiratory protection. Suggested evacuation
distances are listed for small and large spills and for fire situations (fragmentation hazard).
It also directs the reader to consult the tables listing Toxic Inhalation Hazard (TIH) materials,
chemical warfare agents and water-reactive materials (green-bordered pages) when the
material is highlighted in the yellow-bordered and blue-bordered pages.
The third section covers emergency response actions, including first aid. It outlines
special precautions for incidents which involve fire, spill or chemical exposure. Several
recommendations are listed under each part which will further assist in the decision making
process. The information on first aid is general guidance prior to seeking medical care.
Page 357
4-Green-bordered pages: This section contains three tables.
Table 1 lists, by ID number order, TIH materials, including certain chemical warfare agents,
and water-reactive materials which produce toxic gases upon contact with water. This table
provides two different types of recommended safe distances which are "Initial isolation
distances" and "Protective action distances". The materials are highlighted in green for easy
identification in both numeric (yellow-bordered pages) and alphabetic (blue-bordered pages)
lists of the guidebook. This table provides distances for both small (approximately 208 liters
(55 US gallons) or less for liquids and 300 kilograms (660 pounds) or less for solids when
spilled in water) and large spills (more than 208 liters (55 US gallons) for liquids and more than
300 kilograms (660 pounds) for solids when spilled in water) for all highlighted materials. The
list is further subdivided into daytime and nighttime situations. This is necessary due to varying
atmospheric conditions which greatly affect the size of the hazardous area. The distances
change from daytime to nighttime due to different mixing and dispersion conditions in the air.
During the night, the air is generally calmer and this causes the material to disperse less and
therefore create a toxic zone which is greater than would usually occur during the day. During
the day, a more active atmosphere will cause a greater dispersion of the material resulting
in a lower concentration of the material in the surrounding air. The actual area where toxic
levels are reached will be smaller (due to increased dispersion). In fact, it is the quantity or
concentration of the material vapor that poses problems not its mere presence.
The "Initial Isolation Distance" is a distance within which all persons should be considered
for evacuation in all directions from the actual spill/leak source. It is a distance (radius) which
defines a circle (Initial Isolation Zone) within which persons may be exposed to dangerous
concentrations upwind of the source and may be exposed to life threatening concentrations
downwind of the source. For example, in the case of Compressed gas, toxic, n.o.s., ID
No. 1955, Inhalation Hazard Zone A, the isolation distance for small spills is 100 meters
(300 feet), therefore, representing an evacuation circle of 200 meters (600 feet) in diameter.
For the same material, the "Protective Action Distance" for a small spill is 0.5 kilometers
(0.3 mile) for a daytime incident and 2.2 kilometers (1.4 miles) for a nighttime incident, these
distances represent a downwind distance from the spill/leak source within which Protective
Actions could be implemented. Protective Actions are those steps taken to preserve the health
and safety of emergency responders and the public. People in this area could be evacuated
and/or sheltered in-place. For more information, consult pages 285 to 291.
What is a TIH? It is a gas or volatile liquid which is known to be so toxic to humans as to
pose a hazard to health during transportation, or in the absence of adequate data on human
toxicity, is presumed to be toxic to humans because when tested on laboratory animals it has
a Lethal Concentration 50 (LC50) value of not more than 5000 ppm.
It is important to note that even though the term zone is used, the hazard zones do not
represent any actual area or distance. The assignment of the zones is strictly a function
of their Lethal Concentration 50 (LC50); for example, TIH Zone A is more toxic than
Zone D. All distances which are listed in the green-bordered pages are calculated by the
use of mathematical models for each TIH material. For the assignment of hazard zones
refer to the glossary.
Page 358
Table 2 lists, by ID number order, materials that produce large amounts of Toxic Inhalation
Hazard (TIH) gases when spilled in water and identifies the TIH gases produced. These Water
Reactive materials are easily identified in Table 1 as their name is immediately followed by
(when spilled in water). Some Water Reactive materials are also TIH materials themselves
(e.g., Bromine trifluoride (1746), Thionyl chloride (1836), etc.). In these instances, two entries
are provided in Table 1 for land-based and water-based spills. If the Water Reactive material
is NOT a TIH and this material is NOT spilled in water, Table 1 and Table 2 do not apply and
safety distances will be found within the appropriate orange-bordered guide.
Table 3 provides, by alphabetical order of material name, initial isolation and protective action
distances for six Toxic Inhalation Hazard materials that may be more commonly encountered.
The selected materials are:
--Ammonia, anhydrous (UN1005)
--Chlorine (UN1017)
--Ethylene oxide (UN1040)
--Hydrogen chloride (UN1050) and Hydrogen chloride, refrigerated liquid (UN2186)
--Hydrogen fluoride (UN1052)
--Sulfur dioxide/Sulphur dioxide (UN1079)
The table provides Initial Isolation and Protective Action Distances for large spills (more than
208 liters or 55 US gallons) involving different container types (therefore different volume
capacities) for day time and night time situations and different wind speeds.
ISOLATION AND EVACUATION DISTANCES
Isolation or evacuation distances are shown in the guides (orange-bordered pages) and in
the Table 1 - Initial Isolation and Protective Action Distances (green-bordered pages). This
may confuse users not thoroughly familiar with ERG2012.
It is important to note that some guides refer only to non-TIH materials (36 guides), some
refer to both TIH and non-TIH materials (21 guides) and some (5 guides) refer only to TIH or
Water-reactive materials (WRM). A guide refers to both TIH and non-TIH materials (for
example see GUIDE 131) when the following sentence appears under the title EVACUATIONSpill: “See Table 1 - Initial Isolation and Protective Action Distances for highlighted materials.
For non-highlighted materials, increase, in the downwind direction, as necessary, the
isolation distance shown under ‘PUBLIC SAFETY.’” A guide refers only to TIH or WRM
materials (for example see GUIDE 124) when the following sentence appears under the title
EVACUATION-Spill: “See Table 1 - Initial Isolation and Protective Action Distances”. If the
previous sentences do not appear in a guide, then this particular guide refers only to non-TIH
materials (for example see GUIDE 128).
Page 359
In order to identify appropriate isolation and protective action distances, use the following:
If you are dealing with a TIH/WRM/Chemical warfare material (highlighted entries in the index
lists), the isolation and evacuation distances are found directly in the green-bordered pages.
The guides (orange-bordered pages) also remind the user to refer to the green-bordered
pages for evacuation specific information involving highlighted materials.
If you are dealing with a non-TIH material but the guide refers to both TIH and non-TIH
materials, an immediate isolation distance is provided under the heading PUBLIC SAFETY
as a precautionary measure to prevent injuries. It applies to the non-TIH materials only. In
addition, for evacuation purposes, the guide informs the user under the title EVACUATIONSpill to increase, for non-highlighted materials, in the downwind direction, if necessary, the
immediate isolation distance listed under “PUBLIC SAFETY”. For example, GUIDE 131 –
Flammable Liquids-Toxic, instructs the user to: "As an immediate precautionary measure,
isolate spill or leak area for at least 50 meters (150 feet) in all directions." In case of a large
spill, the isolation area could be expanded from 50 meters (150 feet) to a distance deemed
as safe by the On-scene commander and emergency responders.
If you are dealing with a non-TIH material and the guide refers only to non-TIH materials,
the immediate isolation and evacuation distances are specified as actual distances in the guide
(orange-bordered pages) and are not referenced in the green-bordered pages.
Note 1: If an entry is highlighted in green in either the yellow-bordered or blue-bordered
pages AND THERE IS NO FIRE, go directly to Table 1 - Initial Isolation and
Protective Action Distances (green-bordered pages) and look up the ID number
and name of material to obtain initial isolation and protective action distances.
IF THERE IS A FIRE, or IF A FIRE IS INVOLVED, ALSO CONSULT the assigned
guide (orange-bordered pages) and apply as appropriate the evacuation information
shown under PUBLIC SAFETY.
Note 2: If the name in Table 1 is shown with “When Spilled In Water”, these materials
produce large amounts of Toxic Inhalation Hazard (TIH) gases when spilled
in water. Some Water Reactive materials are also TIH materials themselves
(e.g., Bromine trifluoride (1746), Thionyl chloride (1836), etc.). In these instances,
two entries are provided in Table 1 for land-based and water-based spills. If the
Water Reactive material is NOT a TIH and this material is NOT spilled in water,
Table 1 and Table 2 do not apply and safety distances will be found within the
appropriate orange-bordered guide.

PROTECTIVE CLOTHING
Street Clothing and Work Uniforms. These garments, such as uniforms worn by police
and emergency medical services personnel, provide almost no protection from the harmful
effects of dangerous goods.
Structural Fire Fighters’ Protective Clothing (SFPC). This category of clothing, often
called turnout or bunker gear, means the protective clothing normally worn by fire fighters
during structural fire fighting operations. It includes a helmet, coat, pants, boots, gloves and
a hood to cover parts of the head not protected by the helmet and facepiece. This clothing
must be used with full-facepiece positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).
This protective clothing should, at a minimum, meet the OSHA Fire Brigades Standard
(29 CFR 1910.156). Structural fire fighters’ protective clothing provides limited protection from
heat and cold, but may not provide adequate protection from the harmful vapors or liquids
that are encountered during dangerous goods incidents. Each guide includes a statement
about the use of SFPC in incidents involving those materials referenced by that guide. Some
guides state that SFPC provides limited protection. In those cases, the responder wearing
SFPC and SCBA may be able to perform an expedient, that is quick “in-and-out”, operation.
However, this type of operation can place the responder at risk of exposure, injury or death.
The incident commander makes the decision to perform this operation only if an overriding
benefit can be gained (i.e., perform an immediate rescue, turn off a valve to control a leak,
etc.). The coverall-type protective clothing customarily worn to fight fires in forests or wildlands
is not SFPC and is not recommended nor referred to elsewhere in this guidebook.
Positive Pressure Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA). This apparatus
provides a constant, positive pressure flow of air within the facepiece, even if one inhales
deeply while doing heavy work. Use apparatus certified by NIOSH and the Department of
Labor/Mine Safety and Health Administration in accordance with 42 CFR Part 84. Use it
in accordance with the requirements for respiratory protection specified in OSHA 29 CFR
1910.134 (Respiratory Protection) and/or 29 CFR 1910.156 (f) (Fire Brigades Standard).
Chemical-cartridge respirators or other filtering masks are not acceptable substitutes for
positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus. Demand-type SCBA does not meet
the OSHA 29 CFR 1910.156 (f)(1)(i) of the Fire Brigades Standard. If it is suspected that a
Chemical Warfare Agent (CW) is involved, the use of NIOSH-certified respirators with CBRN
protection are highly recommended.
Chemical Protective Clothing and Equipment. Safe use of this type of protective clothing
and equipment requires specific skills developed through training and experience. It is
generally not available to, or used by, first responders. This type of special clothing may
protect against one chemical, yet be readily permeated by chemicals for which it was not
designed. Therefore, protective clothing should not be used unless it is compatible with the
released material. This type of special clothing offers little or no protection against heat and/
or cold. Examples of this type of equipment have been described as (1) Vapor Protective
Suits (NFPA 1991), also known as Totally-Encapsulating Chemical Protective (TECP) Suits
or Level A* protection (OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120, Appendix A & B), and (2) Liquid-Splash
Page 361
Protective Suits (NFPA 1992 & 1993), also known as Level B* or C* protection (OSHA 29
CFR 1910.120, Appendix A & B) or suits for chemical/biological terrorism incidents (NFPA
1994), class 1, 2 or 3 Ensembles and Standard CAN/CGSB/CSA-Z1610-11 – Protection of
first responders from chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) events (2011).
No single protective clothing material will protect you from all dangerous goods. Do not
assume any protective clothing is resistant to cold and/or heat or flame exposure unless it is
so certified by the manufacturer (NFPA 1991 5-3 Flammability Resistance Test and 5-6 Cold
Temperature Performance Test).
* Consult glossary for additional protection levels under the heading “Protective Clothing”.

FIRE AND SPILL CONTROL
FIRE CONTROL
Water is the most common and generally most available fire extinguishing agent. Exercise
caution in selecting a fire extinguishing method since there are many factors to be considered
in an incident. Water may be ineffective in fighting fires involving some materials; its
effectiveness depends greatly on the method of application.
Fires involving a spill of flammable liquids are generally controlled by applying a fire fighting
foam to the surface of the burning material. Fighting flammable liquid fires requires foam
concentrate which is chemically compatible with the burning material, correct mixing of the
foam concentrate with water and air, and careful application and maintenance of the foam
blanket. There are two general types of fire fighting foam: regular and alcohol‑resistant.
Examples of regular foam are protein‑base, fluoroprotein, and aqueous film forming foam
(AFFF). Some flammable liquids, including many petroleum products, can be controlled by
applying regular foam. Other flammable liquids, including polar solvents (flammable liquids
which are water soluble) such as alcohols and ketones, have different chemical properties.
A fire involving these materials cannot be easily controlled with regular foam and requires
application of alcohol‑resistant foam. Polar‑solvent fires may be difficult to control and require
a higher foam application rate than other flammable liquid fires (see NFPA/ANSI Standards
11 and 11A for further information). Refer to the appropriate guide to determine which type
of foam is recommended. Although it is impossible to make specific recommendations for
flammable liquids which have subsidiary corrosive or toxic hazards, alcohol‑resistant foam
may be effective for many of these materials. The emergency response telephone number
on the shipping document, or the appropriate emergency response agency, should be
contacted as soon as possible for guidance on the proper fire extinguishing agent to use. The
final selection of the agent and method depends on many factors such as incident location,
exposure hazards, size of the fire, environmental concerns, as well as the availability of
extinguishing agents and equipment at the scene.
WATER REACTIVE MATERIALS
Water is sometimes used to flush spills and to reduce or direct vapors in spill situations.
Some of the materials covered by the guidebook can react violently or even explosively
with water. In these cases, consider letting the fire burn or leaving the spill alone (except
to prevent its spreading by diking) until additional technical advice can be obtained. The
applicable guides clearly warn you of these potentially dangerous reactions. These materials
require technical advice since
(1) water getting inside a ruptured or leaking container may cause an explosion;
(2) water may be needed to cool adjoining containers to prevent their rupturing
(exploding) or further spread of the fires;
Page 363
(3) water may be effective in mitigating an incident involving a water‑reactive
material only if it can be applied at a sufficient flooding rate for an extended
period; and
(4) the products from the reaction with water may be more toxic, corrosive, or
otherwise more undesirable than the product of the fire without water applied.
When responding to an incident involving water‑reactive materials, take into account the
existing conditions such as wind, precipitation, location and accessibility to the incident, as
well as the availability of the agents to control the fire or spill. Because there are variables
to consider, the decision to use water on fires or spills involving water‑reactive materials
should be based on information from an authoritative source; for example, a producer of the
material, who can be contacted through the emergency response telephone number or the
appropriate emergency response agency.
VAPOR CONTROL
Limiting the amount of vapor released from a pool of flammable or corrosive liquids is an
operational concern. It requires the use of proper protective clothing, specialized equipment,
appropriate chemical agents, and skilled personnel. Before engaging in vapor control, get
advice from an authoritative source as to the proper tactics.
There are several ways to minimize the amount of vapors escaping from pools of spilled liquids,
such as special foams, adsorbing agents, absorbing agents, and neutralizing agents. To be
effective, these vapor control methods must be selected for the specific material involved
and performed in a manner that will mitigate, not worsen, the incident.
Where specific materials are known, such as at manufacturing or storage facilities, it is
desirable for the dangerous goods response team to prearrange with the facility operators to
select and stockpile these control agents in advance of a spill. In the field, first responders
may not have the most effective vapor control agent for the material available. They are likely
to have only water and only one type of fire fighting foam on their vehicles. If the available
foam is inappropriate for use, they are likely to use water spray. Because the water is being
used to form a vapor seal, care must be taken not to churn or further spread the spill during
application. Vapors that do not react with water may be directed away from the site using
the air currents surrounding the water spray. Before using water spray or other methods
to safely control vapor emission or to suppress ignition, obtain technical advice, based on
specific chemical name identification.
BLEVE (Boiling Liquid Expanding Vapor Explosion)
The following section presents, in a two-page format, background information on
BLEVEs and includes a chart that provides important safety-related information to consider
when confronted with this type of situation involving Liquefied Petroleum Gases (LPG),
UN1075. LPGs include the following flammable gases; Butane, UN1011; Butylene, UN1012;
Isobutylene, UN1055; Propylene, UN2077; Isobutane, UN1969; and Propane, UN1978.
Page 364
What are the main hazards from a BLEVE?
The main hazards from a propane or LPG BLEVE are:
--fire
--thermal radiation from the fire
--blast
--projectiles
The danger from these decreases as you move away from the BLEVE centre. The furthest
reaching hazard is projectiles.
This information was prepared for Transport Canada, the Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs
and the Propane Gas Association of Canada Inc. by Dr. A. M. Birk, Queen’s University,
Kingston (Ontario) Canada.

BLEVE – SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Use with caution. The following table gives a summary of tank properties, critical times,
critical distances and cooling water flow rates for various tank sizes. This table is provided
to give responders some guidance but it should be used with caution.
Tank dimensions are approximate and can vary depending on the tank design and
application.
Minimum time to failure is based on severe torch fire impingement on the vapour space
of a tank in good condition, and is approximate. Tanks may fail earlier if they are damaged
or corroded. Tanks may fail minutes or hours later than these minimum times depending
on the conditions. It has been assumed here that the tanks are not equipped with thermal
barriers or water spray cooling.
Minimum time to empty is based on an engulfing fire with a properly sized pressure relief
valve. If the tank is only partially engulfed then time to empty will increase (i.e., if tank is 50%
engulfed then the tanks will take twice as long to empty). Once again, it has been assumed
that the tank is not equipped with a thermal barrier or water spray.
Tanks equipped with thermal barriers or water spray cooling significantly increase the
times to failure and the times to empty. A thermal barrier can reduce the heat input to a tank
by a factor of ten or more. This means it could take ten times as long to empty the tank
through the Pressure Relief Valve (PRV).
Fireball radius and emergency response distance is based on mathematical equations
and is approximate. They assume spherical fireballs and this is not always the case.
Two safety distances for public evacuation. The minimum distance is based on tanks
that are launched with a small elevation angle (i.e., a few degrees above horizontal). This is
most common for horizontal cylinders. The preferred evacuation distance has more margin
of safety since it assumes the tanks are launched at a 45 degree angle to the horizontal.
This might be more appropriate if a vertical cylinder is involved.
It is understood that these distances are very large and may not be practical in a highly
populated area. However, it should be understood that the risks increase rapidly the closer
you are to a BLEVE. Keep in mind that the furthest reaching projectiles tend to come off in
the zones 45 degrees on each side of the tank ends.
5
Water flow rate is based on √capacity (USgal) = usgal/min needed to cool tank metal.
Warning: the data given are approximate and should only be used with extreme caution.
For example, where times are given for tank failure or tank emptying through the pressure
relief valve – these times are typical but they can vary from situation to situation. Therefore,
never risk life based on these times.

CRIMINAL/TERRORIST USE OF CHEMICAL/BIOLOGICAL/RADIOLOGICAL AGENTS
The following is intended to supply information to first responders for use in making a
preliminary assessment of a situation that they suspect involves criminal/terrorist use of
chemical, biological agents and/or radioactive materials (CBRN). To aid in the assessment, a
list of observable indicators of the use and/or presence of a CB agent or radioactive material
is provided in the following paragraphs. This section ends with a Safe Standoff Distance Chart
for various threats when Improvised Explosive Devices are involved.
DIFFERENCES BETWEEN A CHEMICAL, BIOLOGICAL AND RADIOLOGICAL AGENT
Chemical and biological agents as well as radioactive materials can be dispersed in the air
we breathe, the water we drink, or on surfaces we physically contact. Dispersion methods
may be as simple as opening a container, using conventional (garden) spray devices, or as
elaborate as detonating an improvised explosive device.
Chemical Incidents are characterized by the rapid onset of medical symptoms (minutes to
hours) and easily observed signatures (colored residue, dead foliage, pungent odor, dead
insects and animals).
Biological Incidents are characterized by the onset of symptoms in hours to days. Typically,
there will be no characteristic signatures because biological agents are usually odorless
and colorless. Because of the delayed onset of symptoms in a biological incident, the area
affected may be greater due to the movement of infected individuals.
Radiological Incidents are characterized by the onset of symptoms, if any, in days to weeks
or longer. Typically, there will be no characteristic signatures because radioactive materials
are usually odorless and colorless. Specialized equipment is required to determine the size
of the affected area, and whether the level of radioactivity presents an immediate or longterm health hazard. Because radioactivity is not detectable without special equipment, the
affected area may be greater due to the migration of contaminated individuals.
At the levels created by most probable sources, not enough radiation would be generated
to kill people or cause severe illness. In a radiological incident generated by a “dirty bomb”,
or Radiological Dispersal Device (RDD), in which a conventional explosive is detonated to
spread radioactive contamination, the primary hazard is from the explosion. However, certain
radioactive materials dispersed in the air could contaminate up to several city blocks, creating
fear and possibly panic, and requiring potentially costly cleanup.
INDICATORS OF A POSSIBLE CHEMICAL INCIDENT
Dead animals/birds/fish
Not just an occasional road kill, but numerous animals
(wild and domestic, small and large), birds, and fish in
the same area.
Lack of insect life
If normal insect activity (ground, air, and/or water) is
missing, check the ground/water surface/shore line for
dead insects. If near water, check for dead fish/aquatic
birds.
Page 368
INDICATORS OF A POSSIBLE CHEMICAL INCIDENT (Continued)
Unexplained odors
Smells may range from fruity to flowery to sharp/pungent
to garlic/ horseradish-like to bitter almonds/peach kernels
to new mown hay. It is important to note that the particular
odor is completely out of character with its surroundings.
Unusual numbers of dying or Health problems including nausea, disorientation, difficulty
sick people (mass casualties) in breathing, convulsions, localized sweating, conjunctivitis
(reddening of eyes/nerve agent symptoms), erythema
(reddening of skin/vesicant symptoms) and death.
Pattern of casualties
Casualties will likely be distributed downwind, or if indoors,
by the air ventilation system.
Blisters/rashes
Numerous individuals experiencing unexplained water-like
blisters, weals (like bee stings), and/or rashes.
Illness in confined area
Different casualty rates for people working indoors versus
outdoors dependent on where the agent was released.
Unusual liquid droplets
Numerous surfaces exhibit oily droplets/film; numerous
water surfaces have an oily film. (No recent rain.)
Different looking areas
Not just a patch of dead weeds, but trees, shrubs, bushes,
food crops, and/or lawns that are dead, discolored, or
withered. (No current drought.)
Low-lying clouds
Low-lying cloud/fog-like condition that is not consistent
with its surroundings.
Unusual metal debris
Unexplained bomb/munitions-like material, especially if it
contains a liquid.
INDICATORS OF A POSSIBLE BIOLOGICAL INCIDENT
Unusual numbers of sick or
Any number of symptoms may occur. Casualties may
dying people or animals
occur hours to days after an incident has occurred. The
time required before symptoms are observed is dependent
on the agent used.

INDICATORS OF A POSSIBLE RADIOLOGICAL INCIDENT (continued)
Heat-emitting material
Material that is hot or seems to emit heat without any sign
of an external heat source.
Glowing material
Strongly radioactive material may emit or cause
radioluminescence.
Sick people/animals
In very improbable scenarios there may be unusual
numbers of sick or dying people or animals. Casualties
may occur hours to days or weeks after an incident
has occurred. The time required before symptoms are
observed is dependent on the radioactive material used,
and the dose received. Possible symptoms include skin
reddening or vomiting.
PERSONAL SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS
When approaching a scene that may involve CB agents or radioactive materials, the most
critical consideration is the safety of oneself and other responders. Protective clothing and
respiratory protection of appropriate level of safety must be used. In incidents where it is
suspected that CBRN materials have been used as weapons, NIOSH-certified respirators with
CBRN protection are highly recommended. Be aware that the presence and identification of
CB agents or radioactive materials may not be verifiable, especially in the case of biological
or radiological agents. The following actions/measures to be considered are applicable to
either a chemical, biological or radiological incident. The guidance is general in nature, not
all encompassing, and its applicability should be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
Approach and response strategies. Protect yourself and use a safe approach (minimize
any exposure time, maximize the distance between you and the item that is likely to harm you,
use cover as protection and wear appropriate personal protective equipment and respiratory
protection). Identify and estimate the hazard by using indicators as provided above. Isolate
the area and secure the scene; potentially contaminated people should be isolated and
decontaminated as soon as possible. To the extent possible, take measures to limit the
spread of contamination. In the event of a chemical incident, the fading of chemical odors is
not necessarily an indication of reduced vapor concentrations. Some chemicals deaden the
senses giving the false perception that the chemical is no longer present.
If there is any indication that an area may be contaminated with radioactive materials,
including the site of any non-accidental explosion, responder personnel should be equipped
with radiation detection equipment that would alert them if they are entering a radiologically
compromised environment, and should have received adequate training in its use. This
equipment should be designed in such a way that it can also alert the responders when an
unacceptable ambient dose rate or ambient dose has been reached.
Page 370
Initial actions to consider in a potential CBRN/Hazmat Terrorism Event:
•Avoid using cell phones, radios, etc. within 100 meters (300 feet) of a suspect device
•NOTIFY your local police by calling 911.
•Set up Incident command upwind and uphill of the area.
•Do NOT touch or move suspicious packages/containers.
•Be cautious regarding potential presence of secondary devices (e.g. Improvised
Explosive Devices, IEDs).
•Avoid contamination.
•Limit access to only those responsible for rescue of victims or assessment of unknown
materials or devices.
•Evacuate and isolate individuals potentially exposed to dangerous goods/hazardous
materials.
•Isolate contaminated areas and secure the scene for analysis of material.
Decontamination measures. Emergency responders should follow standard decontamination
procedures (flush-strip-flush). Mass casualty decontamination should begin as soon as
possible by stripping (all clothing) and flushing (soap and water). If biological agents are
involved or suspected, careful washing and use of a brush are more effective. If chemical
agents are suspected, the most important and effective decontamination will be the one done
within the first one or two minutes. If possible, further decontamination should be performed
using a 0.5% hypochlorite solution (1 part household bleach mixed with 9 parts water).
If biological agents are suspected, a contact time of 10 to 15 minutes should be allowed
before rinsing. The solution can be used on soft tissue wounds, but must not be used in
eyes or open wounds of the abdomen, chest, head, or spine. For further information contact
the agencies listed in this guidebook.
For persons contaminated with radioactive material, remove them to a low radiation area if
necessary. Remove their clothing and place it in a clearly marked sealed receptacle, such
as a plastic bag, for later testing. Use decontamination methods described above, but avoid
breaking the skin, e.g., from shaving, or overly vigorous brushing. External radiological
contamination on intact skin surface rarely causes a high enough dose to be a hazard to
either the contaminated person or the first responders. For this reason, except in very unusual
circumstances, an injured person who is also radiologically contaminated should be medically
stabilized, taking care to minimize the spread of the contamination to the extent possible,
before decontamination measures are initiated.

(Canada), the U.S. Department of the Army, Aberdeen Proving Ground and the
Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Glossary
Acute Exposure Guideline Level(s), AEGLs represent threshold
exposure limits for the general public after a once-in-alifetime, or rare, exposure and are applicable to emergency
exposure periods ranging from 10 minutes to 8 hours. Three
levels AEGL-1, AEGL-2 and AEGL-3 are developed for
each of five exposure periods (10 and 30 minutes, 1 hour,
4 hours, and 8 hours) and are distinguished by varying degrees
of severity of toxic effects; see AEGL-1, AEGL-2 and AEGL-3.
AEGL-1
AEGL-1 is the airborne concentration (expressed as parts
per million or milligrams per cubic meter [ppm or mg/m3]) of a
substance above which it is predicted that the general population,
including susceptible individuals, could experience notable
discomfort, irritation, or certain asymptomatic, non-sensory
effects. However, the effects are not disabling and are transient
and reversible upon cessation of exposure.
AEGL-2
AEGL-2 is the airborne concentration (expressed as ppm or
mg/m3) of a substance above which it is predicted that the general
population, including susceptible individuals, could experience
irreversible or other serious, long-lasting adverse health effects
or an impaired ability to escape.
AEGL-3
AEGL-3 is the airborne concentration (expressed as ppm or
mg/m3) of a substance above which it is predicted that the general
population, including susceptible individuals, could experience
life-threatening health effects or death.
Alcohol resistant foam A foam that is resistant to “polar” chemicals such as ketones and
esters which may break down other types of foam.
Biological agents
Living organisms that cause disease, sickness and mortality in
humans. Anthrax and Ebola are examples of biological agents.
Refer to GUIDE 158.
Blister agents (vesicants)Substances that cause blistering of the skin. Exposure is
through liquid or vapor contact with any exposed tissue
(eyes, skin, lungs). Mustard (H), Distilled Mustard (HD),

Compatibility Group
Substances that injure a person by interfering with cell
respiration (the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide
between blood and tissues). Hydrogen cyanide (AC)
and Cyanogen chloride (CK) are blood agents.
Symptoms: Respiratory distress, headache, unresponsiveness,
seizures, coma.
Refers to either a chemical or thermal burn, the former may
be caused by corrosive substances and the latter by liquefied
cryogenic gases, hot molten substances, or flames.
Chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear warfare agent.
Substances that cause physical injury to the lungs.
Exposure is through inhalation. In extreme cases, membranes
swell and lungs become filled with liquid (pulmonary
edema). Death results from lack of oxygen; hence, the
victim is “choked”. Phosgene (CG) is a choking agent.
Symptoms: Irritation to eyes/nose/throat, respiratory distress,
nausea and vomiting, burning of exposed skin.
Carbon dioxide gas.
Area where the command post and support functions that are
necessary to control the incident are located. This is also
referred to as the clean zone, green zone or support zone in
other documents. (EPA Standard Operating Safety Guidelines,
OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120, NFPA 472)
Liquids which have a flash point greater than 60oC (140oF) and
below 93oC (200oF). U.S. regulations permit a flammable liquid
with a flash point between 38oC (100oF) and 60oC (140oF) to be
reclassed as a combustible liquid.
Letters identify explosives that are deemed to be compatible.
The definition of these Compatibility Groups in this Glossary are
intended to be descriptive. Please consult the transportation of
dangerous goods/hazardous materials or explosives regulations
of your jurisdiction for the exact wording of the definitions.
Class 1 materials are considered to be “compatible” if they can
be transported together without significantly increasing either the
probability of an incident or, for a given quantity, the magnitude
of the effects of such an incident.

N Articles which contain only extremely insensitive
detonating substances and demonstrate a negligible
probability of accidental ignition or propagation.
S Packaged substances or articles which, if accidentally
initiated, produce effects that are usually confined to the
immediate vicinity.
Control zones
Designated areas at dangerous goods incidents, based on
safety and the degree of hazard. Many terms are used to
describe control zones; however, in this guidebook, these zones
are defined as the hot/exclusion/red/restricted zone, warm/
contamination reduction/yellow/limited access zone, and cold/
support/green/clean zone. (EPA Standard Operating Safety
Guidelines, OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120, NFPA 472)

Flammable liquid
The removal of dangerous goods from personnel and equipment
to the extent necessary to prevent potential adverse health effects.
Always avoid direct or indirect contact with dangerous goods;
however, if contact occurs, personnel should be decontaminated
as soon as possible. Since the methods used to decontaminate
personnel and equipment differ from one chemical to another,
contact the chemical manufacturer, through the agencies listed
on the inside back cover, to determine the appropriate procedure.
Contaminated clothing and equipment should be removed
after use and stored in a controlled area (warm/contamination
reduction/yellow/limited access zone) until cleanup procedures
can be initiated. In some cases, protective clothing and equipment
cannot be decontaminated and must be disposed of in a proper
manner.
A preparation designed for fighting fires involving flammable liquids,
pyrophoric substances and electrical equipment. Common types
contain sodium bicarbonate or potassium bicarbonate.
The accumulation of an excessive amount of watery fluid in cells
and tissues. Pulmonary edema is an excessive buildup of water
in the lungs, for instance, after inhalation of a gas that is corrosive
to lung tissue.
Emergency Response Planning Guideline(s). Values intended
to provide estimates of concentration ranges above which one
could reasonably anticipate observing adverse health effects;
see ERPG-1, ERPG-2 and ERPG-3.
The maximum airborne concentration below which it is believed
nearly all individuals could be exposed for up to 1 hour without
experiencing more than mild, transient adverse health effects or
without perceiving a clearly defined objectionable odor.
The maximum airborne concentration below which it is believed
nearly all individuals could be exposed for up to 1 hour without
experiencing or developing irreversible or other serious health
effects or symptoms that could impair an individual’s ability to
take protective action.
The maximum airborne concentration below which it is believed
nearly all individuals could be exposed for up to 1 hour without
experiencing or developing life-threatening health effects.
A liquid that has a flash point of 60oC (140oF) or lower.
Page 377
Glossary
Lowest temperature at which a liquid or solid gives off vapor in
such a concentration that, when the vapor combines with air near
the surface of the liquid or solid, a flammable mixture is formed.
Hence, the lower the flash point, the more flammable the material.

These letters refer to “not otherwise specified”. The entries
which use this description are generic names such as “Corrosive
liquid, n.o.s.” This means that the actual chemical name for that
corrosive liquid is not listed in the regulations; therefore, a generic
name must be used to describe it on shipping papers.
In this guidebook, means that a material may be harmful or
injurious to health or physical well-being.
A chemical which supplies its own oxygen and which helps other
combustible material burn more readily.
The letter (P) following a guide number in the yellow-bordered and
blue-bordered pages identifies a material which may polymerize
violently under high temperature conditions or contamination with
other products. It is used to identify materials that have a strong
potential for polymerization in the absence of an inhibitor or due
to the inhibitor depletion caused by the accident conditions. This
polymerization will produce heat and high pressure buildup in
containers which may explode or rupture. (See polymerization
below)

pH is a value that represents the acidity or alkalinity of a water
solution. Pure water has a pH of 7. A pH value below 7 indicates
an acid solution (a pH of 1 is extremely acidic). A pH above 7
indicates an alkaline solution (a pH of 14 is extremely alkaline).
Acids and alkalies (bases) are commonly referred to as corrosive
materials.
Poison Inhalation Hazard. Term used to describe gases and
volatile liquids that are toxic when inhaled. (Same as TIH)
See “Miscible”.
This term describes a chemical reaction which is generally
associated with the production of plastic substances. Basically,
the individual molecules of the chemical (liquid or gas) react with
each other to produce what can be described as a long chain.
These chains can be formed in many useful applications. A well
known example is the styrofoam (polystyrene) coffee cup which
is formed when liquid molecules of styrene react with each other
or polymerize forming a solid, therefore changing the name from
styrene to polystyrene (poly means many).
Parts per million. (1 ppm equals 1 mL/m3)
Includes both respiratory and physical protection. One cannot
assign a level of protection to clothing or respiratory devices
separately. These levels were accepted and defined by response
organizations such as U.S. Coast Guard, NIOSH, and U.S. EPA.
Level A: SCBA plus totally encapsulating chemical resistant
clothing (permeation resistant).
Level B: SCBA plus hooded chemical resistant clothing (splash
suit).
Level C: Full or half-face respirator plus hooded chemical
resistant clothing (splash suit).
Level D: Coverall with no respiratory protection.
A material which ignites spontaneously upon exposure to air (or oxygen).
Glossary
As referred to in GUIDES 161 through 166 for radioactive materials,
the Radiation Authority is either a Federal, state/provincial agency
or state/province designated official. The responsibilities of this
authority include evaluating radiological hazard conditions during
normal operations and during emergencies. If the identity and
telephone number of the authority are not known by emergency
responders, or included in the local response plan, the information
can be obtained from the agencies listed on the inside back cover.
They maintain a periodically updated list of radiation authorities.
Radioactivity
The property of some substances to emit invisible and potentially
harmful radiation.
Refrigerated liquid
See “Cryogenic liquid”.
Small spill
A spill that involves quantities that are less than 208 liters
(55 U.S. Gallons) for liquids and less than 300 kilograms
(660 pounds) for solids.
Straight (solid) stream Method used to apply or distribute water from the end of a
hose. The water is delivered under pressure for penetration. In
an efficient straight (solid) stream, approximately 90% of the
water passes through an imaginary circle 38 cm (15 inches) in
diameter at the breaking point. Hose (solid or straight) streams
are frequently used to cool tanks and other equipment exposed
to flammable liquid fires, or for washing burning spills away from
danger points. However, straight streams will cause a spill fire to
spread if improperly used or when directed into open containers
of flammable and combustible liquids.
TIH
Toxic Inhalation Hazard. Term used to describe gases and volatile
liquids that are toxic when inhaled. (Same as PIH)
V
Saturated vapor concentration in air of a material in mL/m3
(volatility) at 20oC and standard atmospheric pressure.
Vapor density
Weight of a volume of pure vapor or gas (with no air present)
compared to the weight of an equal volume of dry air at the same
temperature and pressure. A vapor density less than 1 (one)
indicates that the vapor is lighter than air and will tend to rise.
A vapor density greater than 1 (one) indicates that the vapor is
heavier than air and may travel along the ground.
Vapor pressure
Pressure at which a liquid and its vapor are in equilibrium at a
given temperature. Liquids with high vapor pressures evaporate
rapidly.
Radiation Authority

Viscosity
Warm zone
Water-sensitive
Water spray (fog)
Page 382
Measure of a liquid’s internal resistance to flow. This property is
important because it indicates how fast a material will leak out
through holes in containers or tanks.
Area between Hot and Cold zones where personnel and equipment
decontamination and hot zone support take place. It includes
control points for the access corridor and thus assists in reducing
the spread of contamination. Also referred to as the contamination
reduction corridor (CRC), contamination reduction zone (CRZ),
yellow zone or limited access zone in other documents. (EPA
Standard Operating Safety Guidelines, OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120,
NFPA 472)
Substances which may produce flammable and/or toxic
decomposition products upon contact with water.
Method or way to apply or distribute water. The water is finely
divided to provide for high heat absorption. Water spray patterns
can range from about 10 to 90 degrees. Water spray streams
can be used to extinguish or control the burning of a fire or to
provide exposure protection for personnel, equipment, buildings,
etc. (This method can be used to absorb vapors, knockdown vapors or disperse vapors. Direct a water spray (fog),
rather than a straight (solid) stream, into the vapor cloud to
accomplish any of the above).
Water spray is particularly effective on fires of flammable liquids
and volatile solids having flash points above 37.8oC (100oF).
Regardless of the above, water spray can be used successfully on
flammable liquids with low flash points. The effectiveness depends
particularly on the method of application. With proper nozzles,
even gasoline spill fires of some types have been extinguished
when coordinated hose lines were used to sweep the flames off the
surface of the liquid. Furthermore, water spray carefully applied has
frequently been used with success in extinguishing fires involving
flammable liquids with high flash points (or any viscous liquids)
by causing frothing to occur only on the surface, and this foaming
action blankets and extinguishes the fire.
