Accidental mix of chemicals


Two appliances and crews from Aylesbury attended, along with an officer.

Firefighters located an accidental mix of chemicals, after a smell was detected emanating from an external store cupboard.

The firefighters used:

  • Two sets of breathing apparatus
  • Gauntlets
  • A gas monitor
  • An environmental pack

They used the environmental pack to absorb the spilt chemicals and placed them in a sealed bag, then ventilated the cupboard.

Two women were cared for by South Central Ambulance Service for the effects of breathing in fumes.
