Phase 2 is enhancement of the initial response force by the TMF, FBI, or host-nation units. This phase
begins upon notification of the EOC and activation of the CMT.
Phase 3 is the commitment of the Department of Defense or host-nation counterterrorism force. This is
the phase in which steps are taken to terminate the incident.
The use of resources may extend from one phase to another. For example, the initial MP patrol on the
scene (Phase 1) may be assigned to the TMF that assumes control during Phase 2. They may also be
involved in providing inner-or outer-perimeter support during Phase 3.
