FIRE SCHEDULE Echo
NON-WATER-REACTIVE FLAMMABLE LIQUIDS
|General comments||Cargoes in tanks exposed to heat may explode suddenly in or after a fire situation by a Boiling Liquid-Expanding Vapour Explosion (BLEVE). Keep tanks cool with copious quantities of water.
Fight fire from a protected position from as far away as possible.
Stop leakage or close open valve if practicable.
Flames may be invisible.
|Cargo on fire on deck||Packages||Create water spray from as many hoses as possible.|
|Cargo Transport Units||Cool burning transport units and nearby cargo exposed to the fire with copious quantities of water.|
|Cargo on fire under deck||Stop ventilation and close hatches.
Use cargo space fixed fire-extinguishing system. If this is not available, create water spray using copious quantities of water.
|Cargo exposed to fire||If practicable, remove or jettison packages which are likely to be involved in the fire. Otherwise, keep cool for several hours using water.|
|UN 1162, UN 1250, UN 1298, UN 1717, UN 2985||Cargoes will create hydrochloric acid in contact with water: stay away from effluent.|
