Virginia Tech will conduct a full-scale test of its VT Alerts emergency notification system on Feb. 9 at all university facilities across Virginia.
The test will occur between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. During the test, there will also be outdoor sirens with annunciators on the Blacksburg campus. Virginia Tech Emergency Management reminds the Virginia Tech community that emergencies can happen at any time, and signing up or updating a VT Alerts account is an important step in preparedness.
Individuals may subscribe to VT Alerts or update their account by visiting the VT Alerts website.
All members of the university community are asked to log in ahead of the Feb. 9 test to ensure their contact information and notification preferences, including region, are up-to-date.
