The PSP FLORIAN dates back to 1946

"FLORIAN" Port Fire Brigade ltd. was established as a unit of fire protection in 1991 based on the Port Fire Brigade created in 1946.

We have been with you for over 30 years

For the 30 years of our activity, as one of the few firefighting companies in the world, we have actively carried out activities related to fire and ecological protection of the Port and port companies (including but not limited to businesses that handle fuels, hazardous materials and containers).

We operate countrywide

We have also carried out rescue and extinguishing operations in locations and water bodies administered by the Port of Gdańsk Authority as well as in the city of Gdańsk, the Pomeranian Province and countrywide. We participated, among others, in fighting the fire in the hall of the Gdańsk Shipyard, in removing the effects of an explosion in a tower-block in Gdańsk, fighting the fire of St. Catherine’s Church in Gdańsk, the fire of the Gdańsk refinery and the millennium flood in the south of Poland.

Infrastructure and equipment

The infrastructure of the 'Florian' Port Fire Brigade consists of 4 units:

  • Unit I, located on the left bank of the port (Nowy Port),
  • Unit II that protects the right bank of the port (Westerplatte),
  • Unit III in the Liquid Fuel Transhipment Base of Port Północny,
  • Maritime Unit.


The 'Florian' Port Fire Brigade carries out activities both onshore and offshore. It is committed to using in its operations only state-of-the-art and proven solutions.


We operate modern combat vehicles, support vehicles and the RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) of the latest generation. One of our latest purchases is the COBRA fire-fighting system, which is capable of extinguishing indoor fires through doors and walls.

I am proud of the fact that the company, despite external but also internal turmoil, has been operating constantly for over 30 years. First of all, I owe it to all the people I work with, their desire to develop and achieve; thanks to them, we manage to cope with allocated tasks and challenges we face, so that the Port of Gdańsk may operate fast and safely.
