The door hangers educate the public about how to control mosquito breeding sites and how to protect themselves from being bitten by mosquitoes by tipping and tossing water from containers found on their property, wearing protective clothing and using insect repellent, Hershey said.
Martinsville Police Chief Sean Dunn said in an email that on Saturday, Aug. 6, Sgt. Ben Peters and Officer J. Johnston worked with Near Southwest Medical Reserve Corps volunteer Donna Roberson to pass out 79 hangers on parts of Park and Perdue streets and Melody Lane.
