Good day all, I'm just trying to get an accurate translation for "Embrace the Chaos," (CO) saying that is popular among Fire, Police, EMS, and Military members. I'm super grateful for the help y'all. Thank you!

Pehaps this might work - Glac anord leat (singular) - Glacaigí anord libh (plural) - but wait for the others to say if it's correct or not.

When the verb "glac" is used in the sense of "embrace", it usually takes the preposition "le" in this manner:

Glac leis an anord [singular]

Glacaigí leis an anord [plural]

The second would definitely be used in addressing more than one person, especially in person, but in slogans the singular form is often used, perhaps on the theory that one is speaking to one person at a time.
