Dear S C McKee 
Thank you for your request via email, made under the Official Information Act 1982, 
dated 17 March 2018.   
You have asked: 
  1)  Whom did you inform about the storage of the ecotoxic baits in the Liquor King 
building? (from June 8th to October 17th)  
2)  When you read the MSDS, why did you not prepare an emergency response plan 

knowing that in the worst case scenario of a warehouse fire, extremely toxic gas 
(hydrogen fluoride) would be produced, requiring evacuation of anyone in its 
3)  When you read the MSDS, you would have read that firemen attending a fire of 

the baits would have to be trained in the use of breathing apparatus. Why did you 
not check with the fire chief that they had that equipment and that his staff were 

trained in the use of breathing apparatus? 
I refer you to my previous response of 26 March 2018 where these same questions have 
been answered. 
Yours sincerely
