No. I agree with, but not quoting at all, Nick Reed's point.

I use to sit out back while the storm warning sirens went off. It happened so often, it was not really an alert. It was normal. Just telling me a good storm to look at was here.

On the phone, chit chatting sometimes. Stupid sirens. Often the sirens went off all night long. What was I suppose to do? Sleep in my closet half the summer?

Other than not turning the sirens with every storm, I cannot even fathom a way it could be improved unless you have different sounds for actual sitings or damage in the area.
