Needed: Earthquake Bell
They should use bells after earthquakes. They should tell everyone that they are going to strike the bell at regular intervals — every 30 minutes, say, or every hour, or perhaps as the situation requires. That’s when they will stop all the power tools and all the rescuers will fan out and listen for noises from the trapped. So if you’re under a pile of rubble, you save your energy, wait for the bell, and then yell or moan as you are able. If some nearby church starts ringing its bells unsolicited, that would be a good time to stop the backhoe.
