Volunteer Insurance Waiver & Consent Agreement

Read this document completely before signing. Its effect is to release the Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District ("THPRD") and its representatives from any liability resulting from your participation as a volunteer and to waive all claims for damages or losses against THPRD and its representatives that may arise from such participation.

Staff or volunteers may photograph or video volunteers and use the images for volunteer appreciation and outreach purposes. Images are the property of THPRD. By signing this form, you acknowledge and agree to such use.

As a volunteer, you are NOT covered by the Park District's Workers Compensation program. You are, therefore, urged to have your own health insurance in the event you are injured while performing your volunteer duties.

You ARE covered by THPRD's General Liability Fund. This will protect you in the event of property damage or accidental injury to the public as a result of your performance of volunteer duties assigned by THPRD.

Volunteers are not authorized to drive THPRD or personal vehicles as part of his/her duties, but may on occasion be authorized to operate off-road equipment. If you operate off-road equipment, you must have a valid Oregon Driver's License. You will be covered for property damage or bodily injury to others resulting from an accident. You should have your own health insurance to cover yourself.

Release. In consideration of the right to participate in volunteer activities, I hereby forever waive, release, and discharge THPRD and its individual directors, officers, agents, employees, volunteers, representatives, officials, and any other persons or entities acting on its behalf, and their successors and assigns (the "Released Parties") from any and all liability, claims, demands, actions, expenses (including attorney fees), damages, judgments, liabilities, and causes of action whatsoever, known or unknown (together, "Claims") arising from the fault or negligence of the Released Parties, including without limitation Claims for or related to death, disability, personal injury, property damage, property theft, or actions or injury of any kind which may occur to me arising out of participation in volunteer activities. The releases and waivers provided under this paragraph do not apply in cases of the Released Parties' gross negligence or willful misconduct.

I have read and understand the foregoing information on volunteers and insurance. If I am injured, I understand I will not have a claim against THPRD for injury and damages. I also give my consent to THPRD to conduct a background check. If your child is under 18 years old, the parent/guardian is responsible for arranging timely transportation to and from the volunteer activity.
