Who can register for Alert Bowie 2.0?
Anyone can sign up for Alert Bowie 2.0 regardless of where they live and/or work. However, with the exception of the automated Weather Alerts, the City of Bowie will only provide alerts and notifications for incidents/events with a potential impact to Bowie. Certain types of alerts will only be received by individuals within a certain radius of the event/incident location (i.e., public safety incidents).

Similar systems are in place throughout the National Capital Region. If you live and/or work outside of Bowie, and want to receive traffic or crime alerts for other cities or counties in the area, you're encouraged to sign-up for that respective jurisdiction's alerting system. You can find links to all of the alerting systems in the National Capital Region at capitalert.gov.
