Emergency Alerts on phones

At approximately 3.00 pm yesterday I received 3 separate alerts from Santa Clara County in 3 different languages informing me of a heat emergency. I received them again last night around 10 pm. I have received them again this morning. This has been very annoying, particularly when multiple people receive the alerts on their phones in the same room within a few minutes.
I appreciate the Emergency Alert system, but this has been so annoying that it has caused several people to disable the alerts on their phones, not the sort of thing we would want to do if there were a real emergency (such as a shooter in the neighborhood).
Please can these alerts be kept for situations that are really serious and for other situations, such as heat alerts, be kept to the minimum. Otherwise, it will be like the boy who called wolf.
