"...Most instructors carried some med supplies..." Using 'em without training and permission(assuming consciousness on the part of the victim) can get you in a world of legal trouble. Even if you're an off duty EMT you can be held liable if something goes wrong. Moreso if an off duty EMT does more than just first aid.
You may be the one needing those medical supplies. Rendering aid to injured at the scene is the responsible thing to do. I'll take my chances giving medical aid rather than watch someone bleed out because I'm too cowardly to help. Life comes with risks. If it didn't we wouldn't need worry about self-defense.
