Our department is rich in tradition, camaraderie, and is built on commitment . The volunteers that came before us prided themselves on protecting the community in which they lived. Today we continue that tradition. Our members respond to all types of fire an medical emergencies at any time of the day or night, and in all types of weather.
We hope you strongly consider this commitment to the community and hopefully, in the near future, you will become one of the volunteers that are called upon when our community needs help. You will gain a strong sense of belonging, and knowing you are part of a team of individuals that work together to help our citizens. If, becoming a Firefighter /EMT is not for you, we have an administrative branch within our department that will graciously utilize your skills and time. Your willingness to join our ranks and become a dedicated volunteer, whether operational or non operational will have an immediate effect on not only our department, but the community in which we serve.

The Bowie VFD&RS, Inc. does not -- and never will -- solicit donations by telephone. We never call and ask you to tape your donation to your door for pick-up. We conduct two major fund raising events, a door-to-door Photo Fund Drive in the spring and a Mail Fund Drive in the fall. If you have any questions about our fundraisers please phone our office at 301-809-0122. Thank you for your support!

These services meet or exceed the expectations of the public and private agencies in order to enhance the quality of life in the City of Bowie.
