Fire Departments are there within ten minutes even to the farthest of houses but also have to remember they are volunteer so it takes a few minutes to drop what they are doing with their families to respond to the station. The local ambulance is a commercial ambulance meaning expect to get billed like crazy if you call them. Police are great very friendly state police officers. Sheriffs are useless as they sit at the local convenience store for hours drinking coffee.
Lots of different places to go, some that i HIGHLY recommend are the Notty Pine Tavern in Troy and Duncan's Dairy Bar in Brunswick. Both have that old style feel especially Duncan's which has that 1940's diner feel and look.
Houses right where I live are in good condition, the farther south (city), and the farther north (country) they are more and more unkept and dirty looking.
