John Jay College of Criminal Justice on Thursday announced the opening of the Christian Regenhard Center for Emergency Response Studies. The center is named for a 28-year-old probationary firefighter who died on 9/11. Mr. Regenhard, the son of a retired police detective and a graduate of the Bronx High School of Science, went to college in San Francisco for a year before enlisting in the Marines and, eventually, joining the Fire Department. He was assigned to Ladder Company 131 in Red Hook, Brooklyn. His mother, Sally, has become a well-known advocate for improved emergency communications and construction codes.
