Welcome to the Official Website for Bowie Volunteer Fire Department & Rescue Squad Inc.



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 a medical emergency 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.
