114 Will of The Weekend Homestead on Fire Safety

On the podcast this week I talk to Will of the The Weekend Homestead about fire safety and life on his rural Wisconsin getaway. Will is a former firefighter and avid YouTuber and reached out to me to respond to a post I did on open floor plans and fires. During the podcast we talk about:

  • Christmas fire safety–keep that tree watered!
  • Smoke detectors
  • Fire extinguishers and how to use them
  • Common causes of residential fires
  • What it’s like to be a firefighter
  • Will’s career in fireworks
  • Upcoming and ongoing projects: outhouse, solar power, Instapot, apple orchard, and Will’s SKYBOX

You can find The Weekend Homestead on YouTube, Instagram, Facebook.

    • Thanks PP for your concern. We are in an urban area a long ways away from the fires. The smoke was horrible, though.

  1. I was an intern in fire department when young guy died in his bed we tried to do cpr and all the stuff it was too late, how the guys dealt with it? Made jokes like it did not touched them at all I was shocked by this lack of emotions. That was my experience what I seen.
