According to a press release we received on Friday, "the Portland-South Portland-Biddeford area is the 18th most secure place to live in the United States among large metropolitan areas."  The study was released by the Farmers Insurance Group of Companies, and takes into account crime statistics, "extreme weather" and "risk of natural disasters," housing issues, air quality, and life expectancy. Topping the list, at numbers 1 and 2, respectively, are the Seattle and Portland (Oregon) metro areas.
