The researchers developed an Interactive Mobile Application for Less Emergency Response Time (iMALERT), a mobile application, aimed to aid in the emergency response activities of Palayan City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (DRRMO) through real-time incident reporting. The mobile application is equipped with a web-based database server managed by the said office where the emergency incident reports are sent for assessment of the necessary and appropriate response activity. Using four of the five processes of Software Development Lifecycle, the researchers were able to conceptualize, design, develop and stabilize the features of the mobile application and database which were evaluated by expert and non-expert respondents as a reliable tool for emergency case reporting and response in terms of functionality, accuracy, service and usefulness and security and maintenance.
