You can use a color box.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphicx,xcolor}
\begin{document}
\colorbox{pink}{\hbox to \textwidth{alert box\hfill}}
\end{document}

If you want the text to have a different color use,

\textcolor{brown}{your text...}

For a paragraph you can you parbox or minipage.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphicx,xcolor,lipsum}
\begin{document}
\colorbox{pink}{\parbox{\textwidth}{\lipsum[1]}}
\end{document}

If you want a bit of "padding"

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphicx,xcolor,lipsum}
\begin{document}
\colorbox{pink}{\parbox{\textwidth}{%
  \vskip10pt
  \leftskip10pt\rightskip10pt
  \lipsum[1]
  \vskip10pt
 }
}
\end{document}
