Street medics hold themselves to a very high ethical standard. They emphasize over and over again the importance of Do no harm interventions, consent, and always working as 1/2 of a buddy pair. Street medics are partisan medicine, providing care as a means of support in a social struggle. Their deep respect for everyone they treat is not just how they maintain their own safety, but it is their purpose for doing this work.
