At the end of each interface add:

    server any psad drop log "DROP"

At the end of all interfaces add:

interface any psad
    server any psad drop log "DROP"

At the end of all routers add:

router psad
    server any psad drop log "DROP"

These will overwrite the default DROP rules added by FireHOL.
