Mike Noddin to the Rescue!
sure how many of you know that Mike Noddin, Group Benefits Department Mana
ger, was Captain of the New Britain Fire Department. Mike retired in 2008, but
tly sprang back into action as he noticed the rear of a building on fire in Burlington on his way home from work. A woman on the scene confirmed that she had called 911 and that the owners were not home -
but their pets were! Disregarding Mike's warning, the woman broke open the rear entry to the home to try to rescue the pets. Mike surveyed the scene and hearing sirens coming down the road, he entered the home - which he doesn't recommend doing! He was able to open the front door and let the pets out while giving the Fire Fighters access to the home.
With only 2 fire fighters on the scene, Mike was able to update them on the situation and assist in extinguishing the fire - which luckily hadn't gained entry into the house.
We are very proud of Mike and happy to have him as part of Team Founders! Way to go Mike!
