Having problems reaching the new Alert Bowie 2.0 site? 
Do I need to create a new Alert Bowie 2.0 account if I already receive alerts from the City of Bowie?

The short answer is "yes". We began making the switch to the new Alert Bowie 2.0 system on June 25, 2014 and will be in a transition period until the end of September. If you were receiving alerts from Alert Bowie before July 2014, you had an account on the old alerting system and need to create a new account.

If you were a subscriber on our old system, don't worry, though. You will continue to receive alerts and messages during our transition period, but in order to take advantage of all the features of the new and improved Alert Bowie 2.0, we ask that you create an account on the new system and provide us with all of the different ways you'd like to receive information from the City of Bowie.
