Concord, California

Home to more than 122,000 residents, Concord is the largest city in Contra Costa County, California. Originally founded in 1869 under the name of Todos Santos, the city of Concord was incorporated on February 5, 1905. Concord is a major regional suburban East Bay center within the San Francisco Bay Area and has primarily been a bedroom community for San Francisco and Oakland over the last forty years. Corporations with strong Bay Area regional ties, such as Chevron and Bank of America, have established extensive back-office operations in Concord, diversifying the local economy. Concord also has a strong retail sector including the Sunvalley Mall, one of the 50 largest malls in the USA. Among Concord’s largest employers are Mt. Diablo Unified School District, John Muir Health, Chevron, Macy’s, and The Conco Companies.

To the north of the city of Concord is the Concord Naval Weapons Station. The station, established in 1942, functioned as a World War II armament storage depot, supplying ships at Port Chicago. The Concord NWS supported war efforts during the Vietnam War and through the end of the Gulf War, processing and shipping out thousands of tons of materiel to Southeast Asia and the Middle East. The station consists of two areas: the Inland Area which is within the Concord city limits, and Tidal Area. Because of changes in military operations through the years, the Inland area was eventually closed by the U.S. Federal Government.

Concord’s history of industry and construction places it in a high risk category for asbestos exposure. Workers exposed to asbestos may be at risk for asbestos-related diseases, such as mesothelioma cancer. Mesothelioma lawyers may also be able to assist if you or a loved one were exposed to asbestos in Concord, California.
