What is Alert Bowie 2.0?
Alert Bowie 2.0 is Bowie’s current alerting system. It replaced Alert Bowie, which has been in place since 2005. It’s a great way to receive information to keep you and your family safe and informed. Like its predecessor, the new and improved system provides updates to those who live and work in Bowie about what’s happening here, whether it is a hazmat incident, a traffic tie-up, or an event.

With Alert Bowie 2.0, City officials can send important information of your choosing to the devices you register. We also have the ability to pinpoint a particular area or street on the map when we need to send a specific message to those residents, such as in the case of a water main break or a dangerous situation.
