I love Blair, and the small town feel. Growing up, I always felt safe and at home. More recently, Blair has begun to grown and expand which has sadly taken a toll on the safety I feel living here. Regardless, everyone is still always so kind, caring and compassionate.
Review Blair
Compared to big cities, this town is safe and friendly. In town, there are volunteer opportunities, entertainment, and many churches. We are a growing community, both with new residents and new businesses.
The crime rate has been increasing lately, but it is still a relatively safe environment. For example, I do not worry about leaving my keys in my car. There is a problem with drugs and stealing, but the police work very hard to protect the community.
