CTC Alumnus Receives Commendation Regarding Bridge Rescue

February 12, 2021

One of the most satisfying things that Lancaster County Career & Technology Center personnel can hear about is the good work that our alumni are doing in the community.  We take great pride in our students and graduates.  We want to share what we recently heard about the effort and bravery of one of our Protective Services Academy graduates.

Fire Fighter Stephen Hammond

Stephen Hammond was a 2005 graduate of the CTC’s Protective Services Academy.  According to Instructor William Hall, Hammond graduated from the first Protective Services Academy class in 2005. He was hired by Anne Arundel County in 2005 where he has served ever since excluding a four-year break to enlist in the United States Marine Corps as a scout/sniper.  Hammond is also employed by the Manheim Township Fire/Rescue and volunteers at Fire Department Mount Joy.

Hammond recently received a Chief’s Salute commendation for his actions during a harrowing rescue of a suicidal individual on the MD Chesapeake Bay Bridge in October, 2020.  According to the commendation, the efforts of Fire Fighter Hammond were instrumental in saving the person’s life that day.

We are so proud of Fire Fighter and Lancaster County CTC Alumnus Stephen Hammond!  Well done!
