WHO: City of Glendale Mayor Jerry Weiers and the Glendale Fire Department
WHAT: Emergency medical training focused on bee stings, anaphylactic shock
WHERE: Glendale Fire Station 157
9658 North 59 Avenue
Glendale, AZ 85302
WHEN: Wednesday, May 11, 2016
WHY: On April 24, 2016, Mayor Weiers was mowing his lawn when bees swarmed him. He ran for safety inside his garage while the bees pursued and continued stinging him. Inside the house, Mayor Weiers' wife, Sandy, extracted more than 20 stingers.
As temperatures continue to rise, so will bee activity. To help keep everyone safe this summer, Mayor Jerry Weiers, along with the Glendale Fire Department, will provide bee safety tips while the Glendale Fire Department provides hands-on bee sting and anaphylactic shock refresher training to all firefighters.
