Noteworthy: Noullet was presented with the St. Barnabas Health System's 2011 Hoppy Award, the equivalent of an employee of the year award. Noullet risked his life when he helped save a family from a house fire in 2010. Noullet was off-duty at the time, which he said helped him win the award.

Age: 43

Residence: Butler

Family: Wife, Sandy, 40; children Mary, 11, and Charlie, 3

Occupation: Noullet is a security officer at St. Barnabas, patrolling the Valencia campus, answering emergency alarms and attending to after-hours calls.

Background: He was a security officer at Butler Memorial Hospital from October 1992 to October 2000.

Quote: "It's a dream come true to receive that from your peers," Noullet said of the Hoppy Award. "I'm lucky to be alive. For me, every day is a miracle unto itself. I feel like I've been given a second chance."

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
