Many popular beaches have shark alarms. Have you ever had to evacuate the water because one went off? Did you see a shark?

No.
Only Blue Bottles.
Not for a shark alarm, but I remember being at the beach where my Dad was fishing in a gutter with a dozen other fishermen up to their waists in water and they had to get out because there was a shark (people chuck fish guts into the water when they clean their fish and it encourages the sharks).
OMG!!!

I don't go swim in the ocean for similar reasons. Not knowing what is beneath my feet makes me scared.
This has happened to me once only in all the years I was swimming in the ocean.

Turned out to be a false alarm but in those days there was no such thing as helicopters checking, just the lifeguards in their tower, so we all ran as fast as we could to get out of the water.

I was actually a bit scared when I went back in!

Does yelling SHARK when your best mate is half way down to the water off the bribie isl jetty the day after you watched a jaws movie marathon thenight before, I loved my teen age years.
Yes, but not so much an alarm.
I was visiting Green Island and saw reef sharks along the jetty to the Island so opted to stay out of the water, later I saw swimmers by the Jetty so swam over thinking it was safe.
When I got there the hair on my neck stood up on end as I looked down and beneath me were approx. 9 black tipped Reef Sharks.
I slowly swam for shore not making so much as a ripple in the water.
Needless to say I stayed out of the water for the remaining time of our stay there.
