Notes: From Shelby press release; Due to legislation enacted in fiscal year 2007, the Noble Training Hospital is now a part of CDP’s overall mission. The Noble Training Center is the only hospital facility in the United States solely devoted to training healthcare professionals in the areas of disaster preparedness and response. The integration of these two training facilities will allow CDP to deliver a comprehensive medical curriculum to specifically address medical and public health preparedness and response. The transfer of Noble Training Center further cements the Center for Domestic Preparedness as the preeminent all-hazards preparedness and response training facility in the country allowing for seamless event response and medical evacuation and response training.
