As the Vice President of MAT 4Site Engineers Ltd., I had the privilege of collaborating with the GTA-ECMI team. GTA-ECMI demonstrated their expertise in several critical areas:
1. Thorough Planning: They meticulously assessed our facility, identified potential risks, and crafted a comprehensive evacuation plan tailored to the building’s unique needs.
2. Clear Communication: GTA-ECMI effectively communicated the evacuation procedures to the client’s staff, ensuring that everyone understood their roles and responsibilities in the event of an emergency.
GTA-ECMI left a lasting impression on our organization, not only for their professional competence but also for their genuine concern for the safety and well-being of the building. Their dedication to excellence was evident throughout our partnership.I wholeheartedly recommend GTA-ECMI to any organization seeking top-tier expertise in emergency preparedness, evacuation planning, and crisis management. Their proven track record and commitment to safety make them an invaluable asset in any emergency.

"Words of praise for this company such as; fostered great communication, made us feel comfortable, helped us learn, and more, were told to the Emergency Preparedness Team from the Executive Team and Directors. GTA EMCI walked around during the table top exercise to ensure that everyone was on the right track and was there to provide assistance in the discussion if required. It was said many times after the table top, by participants, that they would recommend this company to other hospitals and companies wanting to hire them."
