On April 27th at 5:15PM, the Prescott Regional Communications Center received a  ‘911’ call reporting a 70 year old female and her neighbor were being attacked by bee’s in the 1900 block of Meadowridge Road.  One crew from Central Arizona Fire, two crews from the Prescott Fire Department, as well as a Battalion Chief responded.  The first arriving crew found two female patients being attacked by very aggressive bees.  The crews wore appropriate personal protective equipment and extricated the two patients from the area.  The two were reported to have hundreds of bees covering their faces and head and were being aggressively stung.

Bad news, this is not far from our house. Last year a bee colony was discovered in a water meter housing on our street. A neighbor said his dogs were stung a few times, nothing like this attack. The hive on our street has been removed.

I was out looking for photos of the breeding pair of Swainson’s hawks that nest near our home. A fire truck and then an ambulance came racing past, lights flashing and sirens screaming on Scott Drive. This happens several time each day on average. There are multiple retirement developments, assisted livings, and nursing homes in the immediate area.
