September 2021: 9/11 Responder's Hard Hat

When planes struck the Pentagon and the twin towers on September 11, 2001, FBI Pittsburgh personnel wondered where to respond—until they learned a plane had crashed in their jurisdiction. FBI agents and Evidence Response Team (ERT) members rushed to the crash site in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. They discovered a crater full of pieces of wreckage, most of which were the size of a notepad or smaller.

To help keep themselves safe during searches, ERT members wore protective gear, including hard hats, boots, and hazmat clothing. The FBI’s September Artifact of the Month is a black hard hat that a responder wore.
