Asbestos Exposure in Fontana, CA

Fontana is a city in San Bernardino County located in a region east of Los Angeles, California known as the "Inland Empire". Fontana is home to nearly 200,000 residents, making it the second most populous city in the county and 20th in California. The city is recognized as a regional hub of the trucking industry, with Interstate 10 and State Route 210 transecting the city from east to west, and Interstate 15 passing diagonally through its northwestern quadrant. Additionally, Fontana is home to the largest of the San Bernardino County system libraries, a renovated historic theater, a municipal park, and the Auto Club Speedway on the site of the Kaiser Steel Mill.

Shortly after its founding in 1913, Fontana became an agricultural town of citrus orchards, vineyards and chicken ranches along U.S. Route 66. Fontana remained largely rural until World War II, when entrepreneur Henry J. Kaiser built the only steel mill west of the Mississippi River outside the city limits. Fontana incorporated as a city in 1952. Fontana's current economy is driven largely by industrial uses, particularly trucking-based industries. The city is home to several truck dealerships, and other industrial equipment sales centers, and, like its neighbors Ontario and Rancho Cucamonga, many product distribution centers for such companies as Toyota, Target, Sears, Mercedes-Benz, Southern California Edison, Home Shopping Network, and Avery Dennison. Among the top employers in Fontana are Kaiser Permanente, City of Fontana, Reddaway, and Firth Rixson.
