Short answer is no. Google has guidance on how to prevent false alarms:

Prevent false alarms - Google Nest Help

Also worth checking their placement to avoid false alarms as well:

Rooms in your home that need a Nest Protect - Google Nest Help

You cannot change the volume of the alarm as it is a life-saving device and, by law, must have a minimum volume of 85 decibels.
