Safety Rules and Test
As of 2010, every new WCWA member at least twelve (12) years old must complete the basic safety test after joining. (Individual units may require periodic tests of all members.) In addition, artillery reenactors and those working with artillery must complete the artillery test, engineers and those working with special effects must complete the engineer test, and cavalry and others working with horses must complete the cavalry test. Reenactors are welcome to complete tests outside of their specialty to increase their understanding of safety procedures. Safety tests must be administered by unit commanders or those appointed by the unit commander; specialty tests must be administered by a unit commander in that field of expertise. Copies of completed safety tests will be kept by the unit commander for verification upon request.
