Upcoming projects will make CDP more energy efficient

FEMA’s Center for Domestic Preparedness has several projects planned to make its campus more energy efficient.

At its main administration building, all interior lighting will be replaced by LED fixtures in the next 12 months. Meanwhile, at the center’s Chemical, Ordnance, Biological and Radiological Training Facility (COBRATF), a new steam generator and a high efficiency condensing hot water system will be installed.

These things will add to a number of other energy efficiency projects completed in the last three years, such as the replacement of all indoor lights and exterior security lights at the Noble Training Facility (NTF) and one building at the Advanced Responder Training Complex (ARTC) with LED lighting. The heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems at the NTF and COBRATF have also had parts or equipment replaced to make those systems more energy efficient.

While the projects will improve the quality of life for both students and staff, they will also keep the CDP in compliance with federal mandates to employ energy conservation measures and reduce overall energy use.
