An NYPD Emergency Service Unit hardhat and folding shovel used on September 11, 2001 and during the clean-up period at ground zero by Police Officer Kenny Winkler of NYPD ESU 1, is seen in this photograph before becoming a part of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum in New York August 22, 2011. Kenneth Winkler was coming off-duty from a night shift as an officer with the New York Police Department's Emergency Service Unit on the morning of the attacks. He nonetheless joined his colleagues on their vehicle and they raced towards the World Trade Center, and stayed in the vehicle outside to coordinate communications between different parts of the force. After the South Tower collapsed, he ordered everyone still inside the North Tower to leave. He had to abandon the vehicle after the North Tower collapsed, and set up a new command center nearby and continued to try and coordinate communications. Later, he would work on the pile during the rescue operation, wearing his NYPD hardhat and carrying his hand shovel, and returned periodically to the site during the following nine-month clean-up operation. he museum, which occupies seven stories below the ground of the World Trade Center site--is still being built at the site of the fallen towers. It is due only to open in 2012, on the 11th anniversary of the attacks. Picture taken August 22, 2011. REUTERS/Lucas Jackson (UNITED STATES)
