Halloween is an exciting time for millions of kids and parents across the country, as costumes come out in full force and candy abounds in every direction you turn. What usually makes for a fun-filled night of trick-or-treating for many little ones may quickly become dangerous if both parents and children aren't careful. According to the CDC, the number of childhood (ages 5-14) pedestrian deaths nearly quadruples on Halloween night compared to any other night of the year.

And homeowners face similar dangers - with so many unknown people coming up to your home consistently throughout the night, it's important to know how to protect your family's safety, and that of your trick-or-treaters, even if you stay in for the night. So what will you do to stay safe this Halloween? Here are some tips to help you in your efforts.
