Safe Disposal of Fire Bomb Extinguishers
Some of the member museums will have fire bulbs/fire bomb extinguishers in their collections. These objects are dangerous to have in your museum, as they contain a chemical called Carbon Tetrachloride, which is considered to be a Human Carcinogen. This type of object may not be covered with your museum’s insurance, and possession of these extinguishers would leave your museum board liable in the case of an accident. We recommend contacting EnviroTech for the safe disposal of these objects. MAS has posted a new blog addressing these objects more in-depth, and we encourage you to read it if you have these extinguishers in your museum collections.
