Description

The San Dimas Technology and Development Center (SDTDC) was established in 1945 to standardize fire equipment. At that time the Center known as the Arcadia Fire Equipment Development Center was located in Arcadia, Calif. It consolidated all Forest Service fire equipment problem-solving efforts into a laboratory sufficient to serve the fire control requirements of the Western Regions. Southern California was selected due to the large fire activity in the area, its evolving industrial and academic centers, and the availability of space in an existing Los Angeles County Forest Service facility. Additional program sponsors brought new work to the Center and its name was changed to Arcadia Equipment Development Center. In 1965, a new facility, 13 miles east of Arcadia, was designed and constructed to house the Center. In conjunction with the move, the Center's name was changed to the San Dimas Equipment Development Center. For the past 10 years, the Center has been known as the San Dimas Technology and Development Center.
