Here's some advice
from Canutec and various SDS:
Responding to Area Post-Gas Discharge
Always wear SCBA
Mechanically ventilate (Vapours are heavier than air)
Check concentrations before re-entering
Medical Aide Response (exposed during Handling)
Skin or Eye Contact: Flush with water 15 min
Remove from area and apply air
Zone 100 m (small release) - 500 m (large release)
Increase hot zone when weather is very cold
Keep out of low-lying areas
