[Snort-users] Stopping ECHO & ECHO REPLY Alerts

I am currently seeing hundreds of the alerts below, but I'm not sure what rule is causing them.  I don't really care to have an email sent to me every time someone does a basic echo request on my firewall.  I'd like to change the rule to log instead of alert.  Can anyone tell me where to look?
