Let’s Make Moreno Valley Homes SAFER Together
Hearing that familiar beeping sound? It may be time to replace your smoke or carbon monoxide alarm.

The City of Moreno Valley has unveiled the SAFER program, a trailblazing new safety initiative providing free smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to Moreno Valley households. 

SAFER, which stands for Smoke Alarms & Fire Prevention Resources, also gives Moreno Valley residents an up to $50 rebate if they show a recent proof of purchase of a battery-operated smoke or carbon monoxide alarm.

The smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, as well as the rebate, were provided thanks to generous donations and contributions from major businesses across Moreno Valley.

Stop by City Hall during business hours and get your free smoke alarm today!
