The EvacMate story

EvacMate was founded on the core value of life preservation. Our story is one of a relentless strive for simplicity through innovation and is driven by the belief that every second counts in an emergency situation. Our range of products and services encompass fire and evacuation intended to save lives during evacuations, help care providers track care being provided with the CareTracker and much more enabled by the EvacMate sensor network.


Our people

Megan LeLievre

Co-founder - Director of Marketing and Sales
Dip PM, FSA, Dip OHS, Dip Sust

Megan Lelievre has a wealth of experience in the workplace health, safety and fire industry. Initially starting her career working in the retail sector, Megan progressed to government before moving into the Aged Care and NFP sector.

During her career, Megan has worked across many sectors including aged care, childcare, community, commercial kitchens, offices and retail. With extensive experience and qualifications in risk management, fire safety, chemical safety, safe work procedures, training, business continuity planning, policy and procedure development, auditing and manual handling, Megan moved into her own WHS consulting business where she identified that fire evacuation processes failed to address problems with multicultural workforces and lower staffing ratios, which had not kept pace with building demands.

Megan moved into system development, designing and testing EvacMate, a world first building evacuation system suitable for all emergency situations.
