Battalion 12 at Third Avenue & East 134th in Manhattan is now at the corner of B.C. Fred Scheffold Place and Joseph B.C. Marchbanks Way.
Scheffold,57, had a 32 year career with the FDNY. At home his creative side came out, and his paintings and sculptures have pride of place in his family’s house and yard. He called himself a “news junkie,” was a voracious reader of the news and happy to enter into discussions on almost any topic. Reports place both men in the lobby of Tower 2 helping to successfully direct both firefighters and civilians to safety just before the building came down on them.
