Welcome to one and all
Welcome to a new dedicated area within the Emergency Services Forum umbrella. The idea for a specific area where existing/aspiring Reserve Gardai could have an open chat.

The Garda Reserve section is open and within the public area. After some thought it was decided that we should start with an open area to allow for open viewing, and indeed to encourage new membership for the site overall.

It goes without saying that all posters on Emergency Services Forum should familiarise themselves with the forum rules, and to appreciate that everyone is entitled to an opinion, and in this instance specifically an opinion on the Garda Reserve, be it good or bad.

The area will be supervised by myself ( I was elected under the communist democratic system, ie youre doing it 22 ) and I expect that it will have its moments. I like to think that I am fair, and always try to have a balanced opinion on things but in any case the area will be moderated by the site Administrators.

Emergency Services Forum has been an outstanding asset to me and indeed other Reserve Gardai over the years due to the dedication of the site members and Administrators. I encourage all members of the Garda Reserve to spend some time browsing the site as a whole to see just how much information, advice and help is available to you.

As Reserve Gardai, you are welcome, and indeed encouraged to apply for verication through the normal process which will give you access to other areas of the site which are locked to everyone other than verified members of the emergency services.

It is envisaged that depending on the uptake to this area, a specific Garda Reserve area could be set up within the verified area of the site. The bottom line I suppose is that its a "use it or loose it" area.

I will do my best to answer any further questions you may have.

Proudly Confounding everyone since 2006. [Image: eck13.gif]
