Description

In Memory of Ames & Elliott Run at Academy of St Joseph

May 4th, 1952 tragedy struck the Brentwood Fire Department. Three members: Charles Elliott, Martin Ames and Andrew Wittman Jr. were trapped in a raging fire near Pilgrim State Hospital. Charles Elliott & Martin Ames died from injuries received in the inferno and because of their unselfish act, Andrew Wittman Jr., although badly burned, survived the ordeal. The fire truck was also destroyed.

In 1956, a memorial bell was placed in front of the Brentwood Fire Department main headquarters. Later, a larger monument was erected on the same site in their honor. The original memorial was placed at the Fireman’s Home on the Hudson.

The goal of our 5K Scholarship Run is to commemorate their lives and their dedication to the Hamlet of Brentwood.
