Asbestos Exposure in Montgomery, AL

Montgomery was incorporated on December 3, 1819 and was named Alabama’s state capital in 1946. It is the second largest city in the state with a population estimated at 201,000. Montgomery is home to the first electric street car system and to the Wright Brothers’ first flight school. It is also known for its historic downtown area.

Montgomery has been in the spotlight for many African-American Civil Rights Movements. On December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks was arrested because she refused to give up her bus seat to a white man, this lead to the Montgomery Bus Boycott. The Montgomery Improvement Association was created by Martin Luther King, Jr. and this helped to desegregate the bus system. The city was also home to many civil rights marches.

Montgomery is located in the black belt, which is an area of land known for its extremely fertile dark soil, this area stretches across Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi. Because of its location in the black belt, Montgomery is a major producer of cotton, peanuts and soybeans. In 1840, Montgomery County was the lead producer in cotton and this continued into the 1900s. In 2004, Montgomery became home to the new Hyundai Motors Manufacturing automotive plant. Montgomery also has an extensive military presence as it is home to Maxwell Air Force Base and Gunter Air Force Base. The state of Alabama and the Maxwell and Gunter Air Force Bases are some of Montgomery’s largest employers. They are also known asbestos jobsites.  Employees who have worked at these jobsites as well as other jobsites in Montgomery where asbestos products were used may be at risk to develop asbestos disease.
