2 Noble Training Center History The Noble Army hospital was dedicated in honor and memory of MG Robert E. Noble on May 4th, 1962 and was an Army post from 1917 until its closure by the Base Realignment and Closure Commission on September 30, 1999.In 1999, Congress directed the Department of Health and Human Services to provide a national training center for medical weapons of mass destruction (WMD) training. It was renamed The Noble Training Center (NTC).On March 1st, 2003 the facility and programs were transferred to the U S Department of Homeland Security, United States Fire Administration (USFA). USFA performed several renovations and additions to modernize and bring the structure to its current size of 162, 000 square feet on 20 acres of land with a heliport.The hospital facility is used as a mock hospital to train emergency managers and healthcare professionals in a realistic environment to enable them to manage a mass casualty event resulting from natural disasters, technological incidents and acts of terrorism.Noble Training Center also provides a realistic hospital environment in which to conduct training exercises for courses that include a medical component such as:Health Care Leadership CourseRadiological Train-the-Trainer CourseAdvanced Radiological Incident Operations CourseHospital Emergency Response Team Training CourseNoble was the pre-positioning and staging area for NDMS Teams supporting hurricane Katrina.
