- Land Fires Process
Joint fires is defined as fires applied during the employment of forces from two or more components, in coordinated action toward a common objective. The LCC has full ability to support joint fires; therefore, subordinate units often coordinate fires directly with the battlespace owner. During subordinate unit planning, additional fires may be requested by submitting the appropriate request to the LCC who validates and actions the request internally, or initiates coordination through the appropriate liaison element. It is important to remember to request a capability or desired effect and not a particular weapons system or platform. Fires can be on call or contingency fires.
