Lift fire on the other hand means to "cease fire" until directed. For example, continuing with the OBJ WOLF sketch a lift fire narrative normally follows a shift fire action and briefed like the following example, "The support element lifts fire once the assault element has secured BLDG#1 and signals with a white star cluster. Once signaled, the Support element is to observe the western portion of OBJ WOLF vic. TRP001 for enemy activity." Finally, to reiterate if lift and shift fire are used to describe the same action confusion is likely to result during execution.
