A battalion chief at the New York Fire Department's 12th Battalion in Harlem, Fred Scheffold was directing others to safety in the lobby of Tower 2 when the building collapsed. He was planning to go to the 90th floor, his family said, but began directing his men from the building when it began to buckle. Scheffold's daughters recalled a time when the family went to an amusement park in New Jersey. They were standing in line for the roller coaster ride when a man suffered a heart attack. As people started calling for a doctor, Scheffold bolted to the man's side and began administering cardiopulmonary resuscitation. ""Those were the kinds of things he did,"" said Kim Scheffold Stiefel, Scheffold's eldest daughter. ""He would do anything for anybody. He was a true firefighter."" He was a devoted and doting husband to his wife, Joan, his daughters said. He also had a creative side that enabled him to restore furniture, write poetry and weld. ""He is the greatest guy,"" daughter Karen Scheffold Onorio said. The Scheffolds have another daughter, Claudette."
