Health and safety fall under the Quality of Life umbrella. Quality of Life is a general term to describe a standard of health, comfort, and happiness experienced by an individual or group. In a comprehensive plan this can include public health, parks, recreation, safety, and city services such as fire and police. These elements can affect mood, health outcomes, sense of security, work activities, and more.

Health and safety solutions are not a one size fits all. It is important for each community to identify current health and safety issues and explore solutions that can work in the short-term and for the future generations. Opportunities to improve a healthy community are found through available physical activities and mental health support. Other elements include healthcare services, social networks, education, and access to healthy food choices.
