Fire Support Coordinator

Definition/Scope: The FSCOORD, who is usually also the commander, is responsible for providing the leadership that ensures that the fire support system is sustained and can support the battle. He identifies sustainment requirements associated with fire support elements and takes necessary actions to ensure that they are satisfied. He plans and monitors logistics readiness and training within the command and ensures that subordinate leaders understand and use external logistics resources to the best effect. The FSCOORD ensures that coordination is made with supporting sustainment elements outside the command. The external sustainment system is dedicated to enabling fire support elements to accomplish their missions. Sustainment of the fire support system during AirLand Battle operations includes three fundamental imperatives. JP 3-09.3
