The Brentwood Legion Ambulance is located at 29 Third Avenue. We are a volunteer ambulance corps that serves a distance of 25 square miles and 23,000 families in Brentwood and North Bay Shore. We answer about 7,000 calls each year. BLA was the brainchild of William J.A.Seymour, the badly injured sole survivor of a serious March 1959 Brentwood car crash. He waited nearly two hours for an ambulance, since Brentwood did not have one. Mr.Seymour was determined to do something about this. He sought out fellow members of the Brentwood Legion Joseph Loeffler Post 1006. Through his efforts, they purchased a 1948 Cadillac hearse and converted it into an ambulance while training 25 volunteers. BLA was on its way, and it has since grown to over 250 members and eight modern ambulances. Among the crises in which BLA has provided assistance are the Ross Nursing Home fire; the LIRR derailment; the brush fire near Edgewood Hospital; and the October 1994 gasoline tanker accident on the LIE.
