Ethical lapses: The firefighter's duty to intervene

When you join a department, you agree to act and serve to the best of your abilities to meet the expectations of your community and uphold an ethical code.

As a medical first responder, EMT, AEMT, paramedic or firefighter, you belong to something bigger than yourself. Public service is a calling and not everyone can do what you do.
