Asbestos Exposure in Phoenix, AZ

Phoenix is the capital of and largest city in Arizona, as well as the sixth most populated city in the United States, with a population of 1,445,632 people according to the 2010 Census. Phoenix is also the anchor of the Phoenix metropolitan area (also known as the Valley of the Sun) and the county seat of Maricopa County. Located in the Salt River Valley in the south central region of Arizona, Phoenix is situated on flat desert terrain, bordered by lakes and the Superstition Mountains to the east and surrounded by the Phoenix Mountain Preserve. As the center of "the Valley of the Sun", the city has traditionally been associated with Old West myths, tourist resorts, and Sun Belt retirement communities.

Founded in 1861 and incorporated as a city in 1881, Phoenix's early economy was largely agricultural, dependent mainly on copper, cattle, climate, cotton and citrus. However, in the last four decades, most of the farmlands have been transformed into suburbs, and the economy has diversified as rapidly as the population has grown. Manufacturing and tourism, traditionally the base of the city's economy, continue to be significant factors. Phoenix is home to many significant corporate headquarters including Honeywell Aerospace, ON Semiconductor, Mesa Airlines, as well as several Fortune 500 and 1000 companies. The military has a significant presence in Phoenix with Luke Air Force Base. Major industrial products manufactured by companies located in the metropolitan area include aircraft parts, electronic equipment, agricultural chemicals, radios, air-conditioning equipment, leather goods, and Native American crafts.
