MICOM-2ES/2RS/2TS ALE Supplement to Owner's Guide
For Vehicles with an Air Bag
Do not mount or place a mobile radio in the area over an
air bag deployment area. Air bags inflate with great force.
If a radio Is placed in the air bag deployment area and the
air bag inflates, the radio may be propelled with great force
and cause serious injury to occupants of the vehicle.
Potentially Explosive Atmospheres
Turn off your radio prior to entering any area with a
potentially explosive atmosphere. Sparks in a potentially
explosive atmosphere can cause an explosion or fire
resulting in bodily injury or even death.
The areas with potentially explosive atmospheres include
fueling areas such as below decks on boats, fuel or chemical
transfer or storage facilities, and areas where the air
contains chemicals or particles such as grain, dust or metal
powders. Areas with potentially explosive atmospheres are
often, but not always, posted.
Blasting Caps and Blasting Areas
To avoid possible interference with blasting operations, turn
off warning your radio when you are near electrical blasting
caps, in a blasting area, or in areas posted: "Turn off two-
way radio". Obey all signs and instructions.
For radios installed in vehicles fueled by liquefied petroleum
gas, refer to the (U.S.) National Fire Protection Association
standard, NFPA 58, for storage, handling, and/or container
information. For a copy of the LP-gas standard, NFPA 58,
contact the National Fire Protection Association, One
