Extinguishing Media: DO NOT USE WATER. Use class D metal
fire agent, dry salt or sand.
Special Firefighting Procedures: Firefighters must wear
full face, self-contained breathing apparatus with full
protective clothing to prevent contact with skin and eyes.
Fumes from fire are hazardous.
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: DANGEROUS WHEN WET. If
involved in a fire, burning metal may produce
severely corrosive fumes of cesium oxide and
hydroxide. Cesium reacts violently with water,
liberating and igniting hydrogen, perhaps explosively.
Cesium may ignite spontaneously on contact with
air. Pyrophoric metal.
Remember, a spent Ceisium tube has a couple of grams of the stuff
spread out with a very large surface area.
You won't see me open one...
