Boise-Nampa Idaho named safe place to live by best places


According to fourth annual Farmers Insurance Group of companies the Treasure Valley area of S.W. Idaho has been named the second most secure place to live in the United States.

The report marks the third strait year the Boise City - Nampa area has been ranked among the top 20 areas in the country.  In 2006 the area topped the list.

The rankings were compiled by database experts from Best Places and take crime statistics, extreme weather, risk of natural disasters, environmental hazards, terrorist threats, air quality, life expectancy and job loss numbers in the 114 U.S. metropolitan areas with populations of 500,000 or more.

Nampa Mayor Tom Dale credits the cooperative efforts of the public and law enforcement to create a safe place to live.

Mayor Garrett Nancolas of Caldwell says it's the quality of life than has drawn national attention to the area year after year.

The Farmers Most Secure Places to Live survey tells a lot about families and local government according to Ron Coble, Farmers Insurance Group senior vice president of legislation, regulation and media relations.  Mr. Coble states "Whether you are single or have a large family, knowing that you are secure in your home and workplace takes a higher priority today than ever before".

In September of 2007 USA wrote No end in sight for Idaho's growth giving factual data as to why Idaho's economy is so strong.

George, That is a wonderful boost for your area with all the things that are going on.  We have an increasing number of violent home invasions, unheard of a few years ago!  Big dogs, alarms and all doors and windows always locked.  I wouldn't have thought it would happen here.  Sounds just wonderful to live safely!
