Reminder: Wake Tech Closed on Monday For Martin Luther King Jr Day

Monday, January 21, 2019 is Martin Luther King Jr Day – a national holiday. Observing the holiday, Wake Tech College is closed on Monday and there are no ESL classes. 

Martin Luther King Jr was an important figure in the American civil rights movement and worked for equal rights for all. He believed in the power of ordinary people using nonviolent acts of resistance such as boycotts to influence major social change. Most of all, he believed in the right of all people, no matter their background, to live side by side in our society with equal rights and dignity.

His words still have a profound meaning in our current times and continue to inspire us.

TEST of Emergency Alert System on Wednesday, October 3rd

Be ready and don’t worry if you get an alert on your cell phone tomorrow, October 3rd,  between 2:18pm and 2:20pm.  It’s a test.

  •  Phones across the country will all  receive an emergency alert test between approximately 2:18 and 2:20 pm EST.
  • This is the first-ever test of the country’s emergency communications system with a presidential alert.
  • It will be the same tone and vibration as tornado and AMBER Alert warnings. Users cannot opt out .
  • It should have a header that reads “Presidential Alert” and text “THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.

The system was set up in 2006 and is intended to notify the public of hazardous situations. While the Emergency Alert System has been tested before, the Wednesday test will be the first time the nationwide Wireless Emergency Alert system will be tested. This system is used to notify the public about dangerous weather, missing children, and other regionally critical situations through alerts on cellular phones. Cell phones turned on and within range of an active cell tower are expected to receive the message. Some older phones may not get the message.
