Summary: 
Fire retardant chemicals are classified as either short-term or long-term retardants. Short-term retardants are used in direct suppression of flames but do not have significant flame retardant properties after the water contained in them has evaporated. Long-term retardants remain effective when the water carrying them has evaporated. A fireline of long-term retardant may hold a fire for up to 18 hours or more, but usually needs to be supported by ground crews to construct a mineral earth trail to secure the fire. Retardants can be applied from the air in fire situations where it is not possible to rapidly deploy any other suppression technique.
