It is advised by WTA’s physician advisor that volunteers be in good physical condition to participate in WTA work parties. Thoroughly completing the participation questionnaire will support WTA in creating a safe and inclusive environment for our events, including assessing individual readiness based on medical history. These work parties may require physically and mentally demanding exertion, including extended hiking or backpacking, for multiple days in a row. These work parties may be in remote locations without easy access to medical facilities or means of contacting rescue and medical personnel.
WTA is requesting this information in the interest of the safety of both you and other crew members. The answers you provide will help your crew leader and WTA staff be better prepared to respond in an emergency. WTA may contact you to discuss your capacity to successfully complete the work parties for which you have registered. This form is valid for work parties during this calendar year. Information on this form is confidential and only reviewed by WTA staff. Thank you for your participation and information during this process.
