About Operation Florian

Operation Florian was established as a UK Fire Service Humanitarian charity in 1995 and works to promote the protection of life amongst communities worldwide.

While the UK has one of the best-equipped and well-trained fire-fighting and rescue forces in the world, other countries are not so lucky. We work to provide both equipment and training to those countries that need it most, wherever they be.

The policies that guide us

How it all started

Established by British firefighters, we saw a dire need to share the benefit of our training, experience and equipment around the world to save lives and protect communities. We subscribe to the ethos that if you give a man a fish, he’ll eat for a day; but if you teach him to fish for himself, he’ll eat for a lifetime.

We have seen that our input, alongside the knowledge and understanding of specific local complexities of those whom we help, can create formidable and inspired firefighters, who can go on saving lives long after we’re gone.
