Firesheep generally uses the fact the the Wifi clients can see each others
traffic. WPA(2) plus client isolation on the wireless access point are 2
things to do to help prevent it. Coova Chilli has no part in preventing
firesheep as it occurs before firesheep.

Should you use something like WPA2? Probably to prevent firesheep. Or
introduce your clients to HTTPS everywhere or if using wireless without any
encryption, then VPN's.
