The only way to stop that is if AT&T cancel that service for you and that's not going to happen...

Suddenly iPhone 4s are selling for a premium...
I have a jailbroken iPhone 5 with the AT&T carrier tweak for increased speed applied, so far, haven't got this update. Does the carrier tweak block this update?
Edit: assuming that the carrier hack was blocking this update, I reverted back to the old carrier file following the instructions by the author of the carrier hack for a jailbroken iPhone, using iFile. Now, each time I go to Settings->General->About it pops up a message box that "Carrier Settings Updated", but I still haven't got the AT&T update.

Tinfoil hats, anyone? Geez, the level of paranoia her is getting a bit much. You all do realize that, under the last President, the one many of you seem to miss (you know, the one that started two un-paid-for wars that we are paying for now, the one under whom the economy imploded), EVERY conversation you had (text, landline, cell phone and email) went through government computers- and that is not MY paranoia saying it. Big brother has been watching for quite some time now. Just look at the cameras everywhere on street corners. As to "tracking" you, your cell phone is being tracked and triangulated at all times. THEY know where YOU are. So freaking out about an AT&T carrier update that lets us get emergency alerts is not really too worrying.

Anyone else have battery issues after this? I mean ... I know ... I turned it off but what about grandma who doesn't know to watch out for stuff like this.

The toggle only determines if the device will show the alerts to the end user. It doesn't change whether or not your device receives them from the cell tower. That alone is at&t's side of things and cannot be changed by the end user.
Just note: regardless of the toggle, you will always receive Presidential-level alerts. FCC mandated those be pushed to all devices and may not be toggled off, even at the carrier level.

Look for this section:Code:
<key>Presidential</key> <dict> <key>EnabledByDefault</key> <true/> <key>NotificationTitle</key> <string>Presidential Alert</string> <key>SwitchName</key> <string>Presidential Alert</string> <key>UserConfigurable</key> <false/> </dict>
I am not necessarily advocating turning off Presidential alerts, but I like having the option to do so, just like one can for the other two. Frankly, I don't understand why they left the third one un-toggle-able in the first place.
