BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Phones, TVs, radios and even lottery signs will light up Thursday to test Vermont’s Amber Alert system.

That test is happening between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m.

The goal is to make sure the system works.

Thousands of Vermonters will get a text message through the VT-Alert system, but only if you’re signed up. You can sign up by clicking here.

The Vermont Lottery will also activate its system with messages on signs, tickets and kiosks.
