Brea firefighters are set to suit up for the first time this summer against bee swarms--domestic or otherwise. The city has approved spending $4,800 on 60 beekeeping suits for its firefighters and paramedics. The mesh hoods, heavy white cloth and thick gloves will enable firefighters to battle bees without fear of getting stung. Brea Fire Chief Alford Nero said the department has been pricing bee protection suits ever since a woman was killed by so-called killer bees in Long Beach last year.
