Objective: The primary aim of this study is to develop a mobile application capable of measuring Wi-Fi signal strength from any unsecured Wi-Fi hotspot that may possibly come from a possible victim in a collapsed structure. Methods and Statistical Tools: The researcher followed the iterative development model as its primary framework in the development of the application. The researcher utilized the IBM computer usability scale as its primary usability evaluation tool. Findings: The researcher was able to successfully develop the application and was able to read Wi-Fi signals from nearby devices. Applications/Improvements: The application can be utilized by search and rescue officials to locate possible victims on a collapsed building after an earthquake by determining the location of the Wi-Fi signal being read the application.
