This TV interview is from 20 years ago but the old adage, "The Golden 24 Hours" of search and rescue still pertains. 85-95% of live rescues are made during the first 24-48 hours after an earthquake.

Noji, Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore, Maryland December 8, 1989
