Here is how each of these countries has prepared for this type of eventuality during an imminent risk:

Brussels - End November 2015
Following the attacks in France on November 13, 2015 in Paris, Belgium had raised its maximum alert level for 3 days, namely level 4, on an imminent risk of attack on Brussels.
The rest of the country remains at level 3. Belgium has this alert scale managed by the OCAM, (Organ of Coordination and Threat Analysis).

The Belgian Police continued to investigate, however, and made arrests in several areas of Brussels.

and governmental websites.

 Since then, Belgium has set up the "Vigilant Guardian" Operation.

Since 2019, the Belgian authorities have changed the device from a permanent presence to a passive watch system with the same process as the United Kingdom, to deploy the Army shortly after a terrorist attack for several days...

Germany also implemented a civil defense plan in August 2016, requiring its population to stockpile food, two liters of water per person over a five-day period, and a food supply to sustain itself for ten days.
The plan also includes contingency plans in case of water or electricity supply interruptions, a series of security measures in case of chemical, atomic or biological crisis, or cyber attacks...

Similarly, Sweden distributed a twenty-page handbook to 4.8 million households (out of 10 million Swedes) in June 2018, detailing what to do in the event of a conflict, major attack on the territory or natural disaster.

It consists of deploying British military personnel to cities in the United Kingdom. The British services have developed this tactic in case of multiple attacks in the UK. The "Critical" level systematically triggers the deployment of the military...

Indeed, the risk of British returnees (British men and women who have left to fight alongside DAESH/ISIS in Syria and Iraq and who have returned to British soil) is high. The risk that they will continue the ideological struggle in their place of birth is very likely.

More than 3,500 British soldiers can therefore be deployed very quickly throughout the whole of England, as part of Operation TEMPERER, at strategic points such as stations, airports and sensitive sites. The soldiers are under the control of the English Police.

The mobilization of armed military personnel to support the police is also explained by the fact that approximately 7% of English police officers are armed.

The British are not used to seeing armed patrols in their cities.

This operation is temporary. For example, during the four days following the Manchester bombing, the British military supported the police throughout Her Gracious Majesty's territory, as above in the streets of London, before returning to their units.

Since 2014, the United Kingdom has adopted a level called "state of emergency", but has not yet applied it on its territory. It considers for the moment that the type of operation "TEMPERER" is sufficient to show its rapid response and reassure its population.

Videos of this operation:

- ITALY - 
Italy, on the other hand, has created the Operazione "Strade Sicure" (which translates into "Secure Roads") to protect the entire Italian territory.

This operation was conceived in 2008. The Italian government of the time, deemed it necessary to call in the army to support the Italian Police and the Italian Carabinieri, to cover all of Italy in the face of a terrorist risk.

At the time of their creation in 2008, the Italian Police unions criticized this operation, since these soldiers are heavily armed to patrol the streets of Italian cities.

Italy has extended this operation several times. There had been talk of lightening the operation, but many Italian mayors are asking for this presence to reassure their fellow citizens.

These soldiers are also called upon to deal with migrants or during earthquake-type disasters. The Italian soldiers intervene quickly according to the requests of the prefects of the Italian provinces.

to the French military forces - 19/05/2017

In addition, the President of the French Republic, Emmanuel MACRON, has set up an "anti-terrorist task force": the National Counter-Terrorism Center (CNCT). This is a permanent counter-terrorism staff of about fifty people, directly attached to the Head of State and involving the Ministries of the Interior, Transport, Defense and Health. It provides recommendations to be implemented in less than half an hour to act immediately, throughout France, in the face of an imminent threat.

  France also has a system called "Etat de Siège" (Level of Siege).
It can only be implemented on a part of the territory, after deliberation of the Council of Ministers and with a presidential signature when there is an imminent danger due to an armed insurrection or war on its territory. During a level of siege, there is a transfer of powers from the civil authorities to the military authorities.

 The extension of a state of siege beyond 12 days is subject to parliamentary authorization.
This level of Siege has never yet taken place.

However, France has prepared military Special Forces of the COS to intervene in case of shootings in cities as linked below:

The code name of this operation was "STABILO DUE"
