The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is soliciting proposals for comprehensive facility operations and maintenance services to the Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP) / Chemical, Ordnance, Biological, and Radiological Training Facility (COBRATF) located in Anniston, Alabama.

Training courses provided by the CDP provide specific knowledge and expertise for deterrence, prevention, response, mitigation and recovery to Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosive (CBRNE) incidents; mass casualty incidents; and incidents involving hazardous materials by providing advanced, hands-on and classroom-based state of the art training. During FY-13, the CDP trained a total of 60,093 students including 17,858 resident students, 30,822 non-resident and 11,413 indirect students.
