STEP Celebrates its 50th Anniversary!!

STEP celebrated its 50th anniversary tonight at its annual dinner at Oak Hill Country Club at which the following proclamation was read.  

Note: Although STEP did EMT classes and CPR training for physicians and dentists in its early days, but no longer is involved at that level, it still is a major contributor to EMS education through its annual conference which this year was held March 30th-April 1st.

2017 STEP Conference!

The 2017 STEP Conference program held March 30th - April 1st was a big success!  


STEP Conference Registration Now Open

2017 is the 50th anniversary of STEP, and the Board of Directors is excited to kick off the celebrations with the 2017 STEP Conference. The conference will be held March 31st & April 1st, with a preconference on March 30th at the Hilton Garden Inn at College Town, 30 Celebration Drive, Rochester, NY 14620. Registration details can be found at

Our speakers this year come from a variety of backgrounds in the EMS, Fire, Law Enforcement & Hospital sectors, and include national speaker, Connie Mattera, MS, RN, EMT-P,  and NYS DOH EMS Medical Director for Western NY, Dr Gregory Young. Workshops include many topics, from medical and trauma care to therapeutic communications and disaster management.  

Based on feedback from last year's conference, the Friday breakfast has been changed to a hot buffet instead of a continental breakfast, necessitating a $5 increase in the conference price.  Additionally, vegetarian or gluten-free meal options will be available at no additional cost, but this must be indicated on the registration form by the date noted on the registration form.

In celebration of STEP's 50th anniversary, STEP is sponsoring a community-based event on Thursday evening, March 30th to explore ways to decrease the potential for violence in the school setting, with leaders from many venues.  This event will have a limited number of seats available for first responders, so early registration is recommended. (See details on the registration form.)  Additionally, STEP will be coordinating a separate educational opportunity (MeduPrep) with MLREMS sponsorship to prepare paramedics interested in taking certification exams as Specialty Care Transport providers. This course will not be held at the Hilton Garden Inn, but instead in the Shapiro Conference Room adjacent to the MLREMS Office across the parking lot from the HGI.  Information for a separate registration website can be obtained using the contact us link/button above.

Registration for a hotel room at the Hilton Garden Inn at a special conference rate will be available.  Use the contact us link/button above for further details.
