DOVER, N.H. (AP) - A knock on the door 10 months ago may have saved a New Hampshire man’s life earlier this month.

As part of the American Red Cross “Home Fire Campaign,” University of New Hampshire students and Red Cross volunteers went door-to-door in Bradley Pardise’s neighborhood last April. They asked residents if they had working smoke alarms and escape plans, and distributed free alarms and replacement batteries to anyone who wanted them.

When a fire broke out in his apartment this month, Paradise says he was able to escape due to the smoke alarms installed by the students.

More than 4,000 smoke alarms have been installed in New Hampshire and Vermont through the project since 2014.
