Forscom concept of mobilization operations

FORSCOM Concept of Mobilization Operations

Phase 1: Planning – The unit plans, trains, and prepares to accomplish assigned mobilization missions.

Phase 2: Alert – The unit takes specific actions to prepare for transition from Reserve Component to active status.

Phase 3: Home Station – This phase begins on the effective date of the unit’s mobilization. Once mobilized, the unit will have 72 hours to be ready to move to the Mobilization Force Generation Installation (MFGI).

Phase 4: MFGI– This phase begins with arrival of the unit at the MGLI and encompasses all the actions necessary to meet required deployment criteria. Soldiers complete Family information sheets. Families are also contacted.

Phase 5: Port of Embarkation – Preparing for departure. This phase ends with departure of personnel and equipment. This is the last opportunity to capture Family information from the Soldier before going into theater.
