Thats the known/tested list. Others may fall into it if global changes for NZ implementation have been applied (you can use diff channels etc worldwide and not all are covered)

I didn't get it - I have 'show emergency mobile alert' turned on (and greyed out so I can't turn it off), 'extreme threats' and 'severe threats' on, and 'show public safety alerts' off. Do the alerts have classifications?

Yes. 

 

 

  • Extreme threats: Classified as threats to your life and property, like an impending catastrophic weather event like a hurricane or tsunami.
  • Severe threats: Less serious than the extreme threats, these could be the same types of situations, but on a smaller scale — stay safe, but you won't need to pack up the car and head for the hills.
  • AMBER alerts: These are specific alerts aimed at locating a missing child. Technically AMBER stands for "America's Missing: Broadcast Emergency Response." But it was named for Amber Hagerman, a 9-year-old who was kidnapped and killed in 1996. AMBER alerts can appear to be a bit cryptic, giving you the location of the alert, a car license plate number and the make, model, and color of the vehicle.
  • Presidential alerts: These alerts will often fall into the "extreme threats" category, but are issued directly by the President of the United States (or indirectly through their office) and cannot be turned off in your phone's settings.

Although this is described for the US usage. Basically its the android base, Our major national one, is the latter
