The natural disaster is an unstoppable reality that people are facing. Nowadays, mobile devices (MDs) such as smartphone, tablets, laptops are common to people, and they are using it in day-to-day life. This research work explores the use of MDs at the situation of the catastrophic earthquake in developing countries for rescue. The main concern of this research is to limited knowledge, infrastructure and access to MDs and the internet in developing countries of both people and rescue team. The universal proposed framework is introduced with low-cost balloon network, Finder Radar and Drone. The main contribution of this framework is the rescue operation after the catastrophic earthquake when all another internet connection will be interrupted. To establish communication between earthquake victims and rescue teams, balloon Wi-Fi network provides free Wi-Fi signals. Furthermore, Drone has considered as an earthquake area monitoring MDs and Finder Radar to search trapped earthquake survivals.
