Animal shelter to close for three hours May 13

The Moreno Valley Animal Shelter and Clinic will be closed 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. on Tuesday, May 13, 2003, so that employees may attend the City's Safety Day Event.

At Safety Day, all Moreno Valley employees are provided with information and updates on safety procedures, rules and regulations concerning the jobs they perform. Employees also review best practices and learn the importance of observing safety precautions as they go about their work. Over the years, representatives from the Police Department, Fire Department, Animal Services, other city departments and outside agencies have made presentations to employees and distributed literature featuring safety information.

"Observing safety helps reduce injury, saves lives and saves money. It's important that all of our workers are aware of and observe safety on a regular basis. This annual training is a great reminder of that," Wieczorek said.
