Fireworks are Illegal in Moreno Valley
Fireworks, they're just not worth it!

Fourth of July festivities are around the corner, and the City of Moreno Valley would like to remind residents that fireworks are illegal Citywide. 

Not only are fireworks illegal, but they are also dangerous. Illegal fireworks can startle pets, trigger PTSD in our veterans, and lead to severe injury or death. 

Moreno Valley police officers are treating illegal fireworks as their number one non-emergency priority, and you can be fined up to $3,500 if caught. 

Visit moval.org/fireworks for more information.
