Abstract

Indonesia is a country that has enormous geographical potential for earthquake disasters. This makes Indonesia must have a good disaster management system between the institutions involved in disaster response. The use of information and communication technology has been widely used for disaster management throughout the world, primarily mobile phone-based technology. Mobile phone applications during the disaster response process can significantly increase response times, search for victims, and the placement of heavy equipment and Search and Rescue (SAR) personnel during the emergency response process. This research aims to develop a mobile phone application that will increase the percentage of survivors with variables measured in real-time earthquake notifications, knowledge of dealing with earthquake disasters, and calls to emergency medical personnel. These variables are obtained from literature studies; then processed into two features added into the application. After that, a survey was conducted to the community to determine whether the two added features could affect the user's security and safety in facing an earthquake. The two features affect the community's awareness of earthquake disasters and the belief that the community has a greater chance of surviving an earthquake disaster.
