Types of Engagement within the RMR The Reserve Forces Act 1996 Introduced statute that permits a more flexible use of Reserve Forces. It includes a: ? New power of call out for peacekeeping, humanitarian and disaster relief operations. ? New categories of Reserve. ? A range of safeguards for Reservists and their employers. High Readiness Reserves (HRR) HRR will have volunteered, with their employers; consent to accept an increased liability to call-out. HRR are likely to have skills in short supply in the Regular and Reserve Forces. Sponsored Reserves who will allow some support tasks, which are currently restricted to Regular personnel, because they might need to be performed in an operational area, to be let to contract. Members of a civilian workforce could volunteer to become Sponsored Reserves thus accepting special call-out liabilities to serve in an operational area if required. Provisions also now exist to allow reservists to volunteer to undertake productive tasks other than training without being called out. This would be on either a part-time (e.g. disaster relief at home) or full-time basis (longer periods of continuous service largely superseding current need to join Regulars temporarily to serve on operations which might not justify call-out). FTRS Engagements Opportunities will continue to exist for Reservists who have completed training to undertake a short service engagement to serve with the Regular Corps. This is normally for a twelve-month period but in some circumstances can be three six or nine months. On occasion it is possible for a man to transfer from FTRS to a permanent engagement, but this as with the FTRS scheme is dependent on the needs of the Corps at the time - transfers are getting few and far between due to increased manning levels.
