Public Safety Expo


Moreno Valley residents are in for a treat as the City rolls out its 3rd  annual Public Safety Expo this Saturday, April 2nd from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Families will enjoy this interactive day with leading public safety agencies that provide services in Moreno Valley - all in a festive atmosphere complete with music provided by KOLA 99.9, food, giveaways and appearances by McGruff the Crime Dog, Smokey Bear, and Sparky the Fire Dog. This free family friendly event is also great for those who may be considering a career in law enforcement or fire services. Visit the event page for more information.

Get Active in MoVal

Spring is upon us and daylight is plentiful. It is time to dust off that bicycle, pump up the tires, and go for a ride! One of the simplest and most inexpensive forms of fun (and transportation), riding a bicycle is good for you and the environment. Biking lets you enjoy your surroundings in ways not possible in a car, improves the air we breathe, and saves you money. Are you feeling motivated? Click here to receive bike riding tips.

Belly Dancing for Fun and Fitness

Learn the art of belly dancing with weekly lessons on how to shake, roll, sway, circle, pop, move & groove your belly! The class is held at the Senior Community Center but is open to participants 16 years old and up. Go to Parks & Community Services for registration information.


Under the strong leadership of Moreno Valley's City Council, the City reached new heights in 2015, fostering economic development and enhanced livability in Moreno Valley. Please open a copy of Service that Soars, 2015 Accomplishments and take a look at how the City of Moreno Valley delivers Service that Soars throughout our community all year round.

Moreno Valley is proud of its military heritage. The Military Banners and Pavers program is one way we can work together to honor service men and women. Click here to find out more.

Hiking Safety Tips

Walking and hiking are safe and healthy ways to keep active and have fun. With the temperatures rising as the summer season approaches, the Moreno Valley Fire Department would like to share some tips to keep you healthy and safe:
  • Hike with friends and family. Not only is the companionship a great way to share the experience, but it provides added safety benefits.
  • Inform someone not hiking with you of your intended location and intended return and take a cell phone in case of an emergency. 
Stay Hydrated - Prevent heat-related illnesses
  • Pack water/drinks, snack bars, or other easily carried foods.
  • Drink fluids (non-alcoholic) often. Don't wait until you're thirsty to drink
  • Don't drink liquids that contain alcohol or large amounts of sugar; these actually cause you to lose more body fluid. 
Stay on the trails
  • Trails are there for your safety. Walking off-trail can increase your chances of suffering an injury or even getting lost.
  • If you encounter wildlife on the trail, keep your distance and back away slowly. DO NOT run. 
  • Be aware of your surroundings-you share the mountains with other wildlife and plants.
