Crime & Safety
There isn't always much to do here, but I love this town. I believe the Ayer fire and police departments are some of the best around. Our town is one of the only in the area to have our own ambulances and every firefighter is also an EMT. Quick access to the highways and a beautiful library and court house. Fort Devens is just a few minutes away which is full of industrial job opportunities and beautiful areas to ride bikes. There is also a State Police Barracks on Devens.
LIVING IN SUCH A SMALL TOWN, THE SENSE OF COMMUNITY IS VERY STRONG. EVERYONE KNOWS EVERYONE AND WE TEND TO BAND TOGETHER TIGHTLY DURING HARDSHIPS. WE HAVE SO MANY SMALL BUSINESSES AND FAMILY OWNED RESTAURANTS AND STORES. THE WHOLE COMMUNITY IS SO SUPPORTIVE.
Small charming town, with nice country feel, wonderful rent prices and safe town to live. The neighboring town Devens has large fields that are perfect for a picnic or an evening walk.
