Default Turn off some emergency alerts?

Incredible v. 1
Android 2.3.4

Yesterday I received some sort of alert about a news story (Navy yard incident). I would prefer to not receive these alerts, how do I turn them off?

However, I would prefer to receive amber alerts, how do I turn these on?

When I:
- go to text message screen
- menu
- settings
I see no category for toggling off/on emergency alerts.

Thanks

Thanks for the reply. I don't see a mobile networks listed directly under settings.

Under 'Wireless and networks' there is no cell broadcasts option. Only 'Mobile network' to turn it on/off. And a 'Mobile networks' which has data roaming, data roaming sound, system select, and enable always-on mobile data.

Hmmm interesting... Might want to download "gesture search" from the market and use the app to do a search for it.
