Nothing a little reading won't fix.

I think so, but I've never done it myself. It's always been a
section of the manpage that I wanted to toy with, but didn't have
reason to (since irssi handles alerts just fine; read elsewhere in
this thread).

If you want to give it a try, though, here's the relevant section:
    $ man 1 screen
    | !:sed -n s/.*Error.*/\007/p

    | Sends  window  output  to  both,  the user and the sed command. The sed
    | inserts an additional bell character (oct. 007) to  the  window  output
    | seen  by screen.  This will cause "Bell in window x" messages, whenever
    | the string "Error" appears in the window.
