BLACKSBURG, Va. (WFXR) — A test of the Virginia Tech alert system will take place today, Sept. 12.
An email from the university said the VT Alert would occur anytime between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.
“VT Alerts is the university’s emergency notification system,” the university’s website reads. “It is used to communicate critical information with the Virginia Tech community in the event of emergency on campus. VT Alerts are issued when there is a need for community members to take immediate protective action, during university closures, or during system-wide tests in the fall and spring semesters.”
