How do Emergency Services personnel gain access to an individual needing aid it they are inside one of our Temples and cannot be moved to the foyer ? I did an inquiry search but found no answers available.
Excellent question and one I’m sure many have wondered.
Since I don’t have access to a Temple President Handbook, I can only go by my own understanding.
In the case of a medical emergency, emergency personnel are allowed access to the temple. If able to do so, the person would be moved to the foyer or as close to the entrance of the temple as possible.
If unable to move, temple personnel would move temple patrons to another room to allow medical personnel the space and access to the person needing medical attention.
It would be illogical to think that just because medical responders don’t have a temple recommend that we wouldn’t allow them in to save the life of a temple patron.
My recommendation is, if needing more information, contact the temple closest to you and inquire of them their policy on this.
