This Firefighter Hero WOD is dedicated to Fred Scheffold, FDNY, Battalion 12, who was killed on September 11, 2001.
Fred Scheffold was at the end of his 24-hour shift at the New York City Fire Department’s 12th Battalion in Harlem and Joseph Marchbanks was just beginning his, there to replace Scheffold, when the call came for help. The two men, both battalion chiefs, share more than job titles. Both live in Rockland. Both are dedicated husbands and fathers. Both are funny and fearless. And both are still missing.
A week ago today, Scheffold, 57, and Marchbanks, 47, were directing others to safety in the lobby of Tower 2 of the World Trade Center just before it disintegrated. Scheffold was planning to go to the 90th floor, his family said, but began directing his men out of the building when it began to buckle. Scheffold and Marchbanks haven’t been heard from since. Their families haven’t given up hope, believing intelligence and instinct have kept the men alive.
