I'm about a half hour away unless there's bad weather. I love my location because it's quiet, scenic, and private. Every year several million people from all over the world for the vacation of a lifetime. I have no interest in town life.

5 minutes for police, fire, and ambulance. 2 hospitals 5 miles away. 2 medicenters less than a mile.

I live right on the border of suburb and rural.

My location is perfect to get me anywhere FAST. I feel safe and happy here.

In 2016 I called 911 at 11:40 PM. Was through the ER and in an ICU bed by 11:00 PM. This was a city ambulance in NYC.

Some of the hospitals have their own ambulance so they prefer to take you to their own hospital. Which hospital you end up in depends on which ambulance shows up.

To avoid that and have a better chance of getting your chosen hospital you can ask 911 for a city ambulance which is what I did.

Interesting. Some people post that they don't want to live past 75 'cause it's gonna suck. Some want to be sure they get the rib cage broken, tubes down the throat so they can get a little more time. Go figure.

I also make sure my sewer is clear during snow and rain unlike everyone else.

I didn't even think about how close emergency services were when I bought my house but it makes me feel pretty 'safe' that they are. No fire hydrants in my neighborhood but thankfully we don't get snow, etc. in winter.
