Why do some civilians not follow alerts? It gets aggravating when dwarves get picked off because they're too cool for my legendary statue park.

First things first, you went to your military page, hit a for alerts, selected the alert level, and selected your burrow on the right for civilians, and at the top of that page it says 1 civilian burrow or something like that? 

Second things second, try making a new burrow thats a single tile wide somewhere and alert leveling to that instead, if that works, it means you've got a little bit of burrow defined not where you think, in which case dwarves outside will happily pretend theyre pathing to the far away bit of burrow while spamming job cancellations and "help help I'm on fire, won't somebody please rescue my socks?"

Yup, turns out I didn't define the burrows I wanted them in.
