Fire Commissioner Nicholas Scoppetta is stepping down at the end of the year. The AP reports, "Scoppetta took over just months after the Sept. 11 terrorist attack that devastated the FDNY, killing 343. He said in a letter to staff Thursday that he took the post because he wanted to help the city recover from the tragedy. He said the biggest challenge of his job was to rebuild the ranks while preparing to respond to another attack."
