||Jan. 1995, Vol.49, No.1, p.49-55. Illus. 9 ref.
||In some laboratories microorganisms such as pathogenic bacteria, viruses, parasites, fungi, hazardous cell cultures and radioactively marked substances are used. The local fire brigade needs to be informed of the biological agents used in all laboratories in its district. This information enables the fire brigade to determine the hazard posed in each case with the help of the classification of biological hazards in the European directive 90/679/EEC. All actions and protective measures by the fire brigade in case of a laboratory fire need to be based on the worst hazard that the particular laboratory poses.
