Emergencies happen all the time. In Bowie, our hazards include floods, home fires, extreme heat, snow storms, and the occasional tornado or hurricane. The job of Bowie's Office of Emergency Management is to prepare for, respond to, recover from and mitigate against disasters and emergencies. We accomplish this mission in a number of ways, including developing emergency preparedness programs and response plans, as well as working within in our community to promote preparedness and build community resilience.
What We Do
- Plan for and support the growth of the entire Bowie community through community resilience oriented planning and programs.
- Coordinate with federal, state, and local governments as well as community partners, non-government organizations and local business partners to share resources and support one another during major emergencies and disasters.
- Provide subject matter expertise in the areas of preparedness, mitigation, response and recovery through planning, training, exercise and resource management.
