Virginia Tech to Retest Alert Systems on Wednesday

Blacksburg, VA - Virginia Tech plans to retest its alerts system on Wednesday at the Blacksburg campus and the university's other facilities across the state.

The reason for the retest is to make sure that a technical problem with the database has been fixed.

The retest will happen between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Wednesday.

We're told it will not include the outdoor sirens in Blacksburg.
