2-14. HAND-OPERATED FIRE EXTINGUISHER.
Repeated or prolonged exposure to high concentrations of monobromotriluoromethane (CF3Br) or
decomposition products should be avoided. The liquid shall not be allowed to come into contact
with the skin, as it may cause frostbite or low temperature burns because of its very low boiling
point. High concentrations of the extinguishing agent can produce toxic by-products when applied
to ire. Avoid inhalation of the by-products by evacuating and ventilating the area.
One hand-operated ire extinguisher is mounted below the pilot s seat and a second extinguisher is located in the left
cabin sidewall, aft of the cabin door. The ire extinguishers are of the monobromotriluoromethane (CF3Br) type. The
extinguisher is charged to a pressure of 150 to 170 PSI and emits a forceful stream. Use an extinguisher with care
within the limited area of the cabin to avoid severe splashing. When used on ires of intense heat, decomposition of
the extinguishing agent may be accompanied by a sharp acrid odor. This will serve to warn the operator of excessive
exposure to the by-products of combustion and take evasive action.
Engine ire extinguisher systems are described in Section III.
2-15. SURVIVAL RAFTS AND KITS.
Tie-down provisions for a survival raft and kit are provided in the aft cargo area.
