IPT is proud to announce the addition of the Automated External Defibrillator (AED) to its headquarters and most of its gas stations' health and safety equipment, starting with IPT's first sustainable & advanced gas station in Amchit and the first of its kind in Lebanon. 
This medical equipment is a portable life saving device accessible to the public, that can be safely used to deliver electric shocks through the chest whenever someone undergoes a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) and has few minutes to be saved. 

In this framework, IPT hosted a specialist in the field who explained about the benefits and usage of the device in the presence of Red Cross Representatives, medical specialists, and IPT managers.
