The Port of Gdańsk provides the highest levels of safety. The ZMPG S.A. Rescue Centre, acting also as the Coordination and Rescue Centre, operates on our premises. It associates the following security services working within the premises: port dispatcher, shift commander of the Gdańsk Port Security Unit and the dispatcher of the Florian Port Fire Service.
Thanks to this, information about any event that threatens human life and health or the environment is gathered in one place to enable immediate actions. The Centre coordinates the port services with the Captain’s Office, State Fire Service, Police and Ambulance Services. Therefore, intervention groups, firefighting trucks and ships can be used more efficiently.
