STEP News & Events

STEP invites you to participate in an opportunity to honor first responders and our armed forces in a Weekend of Remembrance on this 15th anniversary of the tragedy of 9/11. Please click image for full event flyer.

STEP has been involved in preserving EMS history for many years at its archives housed at the Rochester Academy of Medicine, so it was a natural progression to an event that would help others commemorate and preserve their histories.

Additional details about the events can be found at Restore Your Photos or at Emergency Services Directory. Hope to see you at one of the events!!


The 2017 STEP Conference will be again held at the Hilton Garden Inn at CollegeTown in Rochester, NY on March 31st and April 1st with a preconference on March 30th. Watch for additional information as it becomes available on the Upcoming Conference tab or on the Emergency Services Directory - News/Events page.
