The emergency alerts feature on modern smartphones is legitimately useful: It can warn you about dangerous weather conditions, natural disasters, AMBER alerts, or other important tidbits of information. If any of this sounds like you, you’ll be pleased to know that Android has a healthy array of options for managing emergency alerts. If you’d like to change the duration of the alert sound, tap Alert sound duration, then adjust how long you’d like the alert sound to, uh, sound.
Even if you’re well plugged-in to the news, there are still good reasons to keep the alerts on—they aren’t too frequent, and depending on the circumstances, they may be quicker at getting you the news you need than media outlets would be.

Nobody likes to imagine an emergency that they are involved in, but I'll wager that most of us have had an Amber alert or weather alert come through on our Android, jarring us with that sound you can't ignore. Speaking of emergencies - this brilliant little device may save you in a real emergency if your phone battery dies. Smartphones are an excellent way for the passing along of information about these emergency situations, because so many people have one in their pocket. If you’d like to be alerted again in case you missed the initial alert, tap Alert reminder and choose your preferred setting.
