TUCSON (Tucson News Now) - Tucson Fire says it responded to six different locations for bee related incidents on Sunday.  However, no one was transported to any hospital for further medical attention. 

TFD says the calls were not specific to a particular area of town, but the majority of the bee related calls have been generated from people calling in to 9-1-1 to report bee swarms.  

Firefighters say if a swarm is not attacking, it is simply best to keep your distance.  In most cases the swarm will move on without incident.  If you're not comfortable with a swarm on your property, call a professional bee removal specialist.

TFD says if you are being attacked, cover your face with something and run to the nearest home, car, or other shelter that creates a barrier between you and the bees. If a swarm is attacking a person or animal, call 9-1-1 immediately.
