Pocatello Ranked in Top 100 “Best Places for First Responders to Live and Work”


The Gate City is finding itself towards the top in terms of places to live for our bravest and finest. An analysis by the college and careers website Goodcall, finds that Pocatello ranks at number 30 in a report titled “Best Places for First Responders to Live and Work.” The survey analyzed over 900 U.S. communities to see how they fared in job and lifestyle opportunities provided to police officers, firefighters, and emergency medical technicians (EMT). The report ranked the communities on four factors: Affordability: how police officer, firefighter, and EMT salaries weighed against local housing costs Job competition: current number of open positions weighed with the number of resumes posted for hire Crime rating: the number of violent crimes reported by the Federal Bureau of Investigation Lifestyle: number of local restaurant, arts, and entertainment amenities per capita “I’m happy to see that as a community and as a City we are taking care of the men and women who selflessly serve us,” said Mayor Brian Blad. “Each day they don their uniforms they put so much on the line.” The full report can be found at
