StandAlone has, I believe, a package that should do what you
want--Alarmed and Dangerous? I can't remember its name, but I believe
it works with built-in dates, as well as its own alarms. For myself, I
use Action Names. It allows two alarms per event. Back in the day, I
had one alarm go off two weeks in advance of meetings, to remind me to
call and confirm (and get directions if necessary) and the second a
day before. Other things might get an alarm that morning, and another
30 minutes before. It's quite useful--but not what you are looking
