St. Lawrence News


St. Lawrence senior Christian Ehrhardt not only knows how to respond to emergencies ranging from fires to terrorist bombings, he's teaching local authorities how to do it as well.

Ehrhardt, a government major from Manhasset, New York, is an emergency medical technician and volunteer firefighter. He's a member of the Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department on Long Island and the Canton Fire Department. He has undergone extensive training, achieving certification in the principles of fire investigation; hazardous materials handling; technical emergency response training with live chemical agents and "incident command" for weapons of mass destruction. Ehrhardt has also undergone training with the Department of Homeland Security's Center for Domestic Preparedness, and recently conducted a training session for local EMTs, firefighters and law enforcement personnel in "incident response to terrorist bombings awareness," through the St. Lawrence County Emergency Services Department.

In addition, Ehrhardt has participated in internships with the office of the inspector general of the New York City Department of Investigation and the Spain-U.S. Chamber of Commerce in New York City, and is a member of the Alumni Board of the Portledge School in Locust Valley, New York. His brother, George, is a member St. Lawrence's Class of 2008 and sister, Dorothea, is in the Class of 2010 at St. Lawrence.
