Government agencies like the Bureau of Fire Protection in the municipality of Hinunangan wanted to improve their records keeping and retrieval, including disaster risk response and monitoring. Southern Leyte State University-Hinunangan responded positively to the request and developed a system purposely to properly handle records and efficiently monitor establishments for business and building compliance. The integration particularly of a geographic information system aimed at determining, locating, and monitoring establishments particularly when responding to fire or disaster risk-related incidents. The System Development Life Cycle (SDLC Framework), which employs the entire iterative waterfall approach, was used in the development process. Upon deployment, the agency conducted a month-long series of user tests utilizing test scripts to determine the system's usability and functionalities. A systems evaluation was also supplied patterned from the ISO 9126-1 software quality model standard. According to the users from the Bureau of Fire Protection, the developed system is significant and relevant for their operations. It assists in the provision of enhanced records management operations and helps improve disaster risk response and monitoring services, all of which were highly accepted by users.
