               On Saturday October 13th, The Bowie Volunteer Fire Department & Rescue Squad will host our Annual Fire Prevention Open House at Station 39 from 11:00am to 4:00pm. The event will be held at Station 39, which is located at 15454 Annapolis Road, Bowie Maryland. This event is a great way help us help you by attending a full day of fun, sights and sounds. See live demonstrations and displays of fire trucks, as well as other public safety vehicles/equipment.  This year, we will follow the theme established by the National Fire Protection Association for Fire Prevention Week, "Have 2 Ways Out". Our program has earned numerous awards from the Maryland State Fireman's Association, and The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office.
