Tony Russell is the Superintendent at the Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP) in Anniston, Ala. 

As Superintendent, Mr. Russell provides executive level management and leadership for the CDP as it provides unique, hands-on training to more than 45,000 emergency responders a year from state, local, tribal, and territorial agencies. 
Mr. Russell is also responsible for operations of the CDP’s 176-acre campus, which is home to the only training facility in the country where civilian responders can train in a toxic agent environment and the Nation’s only hospital training facility dedicated solely to preparing the healthcare, public health, and environmental health communities for mass casualty events related to terrorism or natural disasters.
The Center for Domestic Preparedness provides advanced, all-hazards training to approximately 50,000 emergency responders annually from state, local, tribal, and territorial governments, as well as the federal government, foreign governments, and private entities, as available.
The scope of training includes preparedness, protection, and response.
Since it opened its doors in 1998, the CDP has trained more than 1.3 million responders.
Responders in 17 different disciplines – Emergency Management, Emergency Medical Services, Fire Service, Governmental Administrative, Hazardous Materials, Healthcare, Law Enforcement, Public Health, Public Safety Communications, Public Works, Agriculture, Education, Citizen/Community Volunteer, Information Technology, Security and Safety, Search and Rescue, and Transportation – train at the CDP.

The responders come from all 50 states and territories, as well as a number of foreign countries.
