WATERBURY, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Department of Public Safety will be testing the state’s Amber Alert system used in the event of a missing or abducted child.

Officials say the test on Wednesday will be used to evaluate changes to technology used to alert Vermonters when the system is activated.

The test includes a mass emailing to organizations, activation of the Vermont Lottery notification system, coordination with the Vermont Agency of Transportation messaging signs, and distribution of information to broadcasters.

All communications related to the drill will include a notice saying that it is a test.
