The volunteer's for the West Gardiner Fire Department are uncomparable. They are prompt, empathetic and friendly. After my family and I surviving a house fire 2 days after Christmas I would like to give a BIG THANK YOU to this department. If one's worse nightmare could go right, it is because of this volunteer fire department. Again, Thank you for all that you do!

Local transportation is great; many people walk and bicycle. However, traveling to the big stores is difficult as one must cross a major highway to get there.
Lots of unique, small shops, but not many attractions for late-night clubbing and whatnot.
