As for the crime rate, I don"t know the numbers, but I live just outside the city limits in the county in a nice neighborhood. We have evening walks, family bikers and I've lived in this particular house 7 years and have never had a problem. I have health issues and the SO is called quite regularly and the sherrifs all know me on a first name basis. I love fallon and I'm now what you'd call a Fallonite! I have a wonderful congregation that is closer to me than actual family and my neighbors all keep an eye out for each other. Maybe the worst problem is speeders. But, other than that, buy a place put up your picket fence and enjoy the quiet. We're just over an hour from RENO, so doctors for special problems are an hour away, but we do have a local hospital that does pretty good. They know when they are out of their league and aren't afraid to careflight or transport by ambulance when necessary!
