When it comes to finding the best place for you and your family to live, safety should always be a priority.

Translation? Homeowners and residents in both locations have a responsibility to take the proper precautions and support their families and communities.

According to a study published in the Annals of Emergency Medicine and reported on by Time.com's Ecocentric blog, the risk of injury or death from either crime or accidents is a full 20% greater in the countryside than in the city.

Buying a new home? Taking some time to meet with your insurance provider before closing can help make sure you and your family have the right coverage for one of the most important purchases you'll ever make! Here are two important ways to save money on this important coverage:
