Bowie VFD is hosting a Retention and Recruitment Workshop on September 24th and 25th!

A number of training opportunities are available to Bowie VFD members:


The Maryland Fire and Rescue Institute offers an extensive schedule of classes in the Southern Maryland Region, which includes Prince George's County. Please see a station officer or your station chief to register for a class.
