Local school organizes safety day for students and parents.

JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - Statistics show that 2,500 children are reported missing everyday! To put that into perspective, that is the amount of children it would take to fill 50 school buses.

These alarming statistics are what prompted Concordia Christian Academy to have their back to school safety day. Saturday, children were given fire safety tips and got to take an up close look at the station's fire truck. They were also instructed on proper bike safety. CCA wanted this day to be fun for the kids and helpful for the parents.

This was the first year for the safety day and Concordia Christian Academy is aiming to continue  this event either once or twice a year.
