|Description||This report discusses the hazards of hydrogen chloride (HCl) gas generators associated with clandestine drug labs. HCl gas is a common component used for the illegal production of methamphetamine. It is under pressure, highly toxic, and corrosive. This report describes generators encountered in the field and details methods for assessing them and rendering them safe for disposal. The methods described in this report are intended to be conducted by trained and equipped responders.|
