The primary hazard associated with most flammable liquids is fire and explosion, which occurs when their vapors mix with air in the presence of an ignition source.
The risk of fire and explosion from flammable liquids necessitates a coordinated response involving fire departments, hazardous materials teams, and emergency medical services. For instance, in an industrial accident involving a flammable liquid spill, the ICS would orchestrate the containment of the spill, fire suppression efforts, and medical care for any affected individuals. This response highlights the critical need for well-prepared emergency plans and trained personnel to effectively manage the inherent dangers of fire and explosion in various settings.
