Asbestos Exposure in Burlingame, CA

Known for its Victorian architecture and high residential quality of life, Burlingame is a suburban city with an estimated 28,000 residents in San Mateo County. Burlingame is located on the San Francisco Peninsula and has a significant shoreline on San Francisco Bay. The city is named after Anson Burlingame who was an American lawyer, legislator, and diplomat. Burlingame was settled largely by wealthy San Franciscans looking for a better climate. Due to the number of trees within the city (roughly 18,000), Burlingame is often referred to as the "City of Trees". The city has passed an ordinance "prohibiting cutting, injuring, or destroying trees". Additionally, most residential properties have trees that are owned and protected by the city.

During the 1920s, Burlingame was home to many for automobile retailers. Industrial growth was spurred in the 1960s and 1970s due to a population increase and Burlingame's proximity to the San Francisco International Airport. Various airline-related support service companies opened in Burlingame. Some of the top employers in Burlingame today include Peninsula Health Services, LSG/Sky Chefs, Inc., Guittard Chocolate Company, and Virgin America.
