Liability Release

I certify that the information given herein is true and complete to the best of my knowledge.

I understand that misrepresentation or omission of facts contained herein will be sufficient cause for cancellation of consideration for volunteer service, or dismissal if I have already started volunteering.
By checking the box below, I, the volunteer or the parent/guardian of the named volunteer (collectively, “Volunteer”), understand that the activities (and transportation to and from such activities) subject Volunteer to known and unknown risks and hazards that could result in injury, death, illness, disease, physical or mental damage to Volunteer, Volunteer’s property, or other third parties. Volunteer understands that District does not provide insurance coverage for Volunteer, and that such insurance coverage is the responsibility of the Volunteer. Volunteer acknowledges and accepts all risks and hazards incidental to Volunteer’s participation in the activities. To the maximum extent permitted by law, Volunteer agrees to release, indemnify, and hold harmless District, and its officers, agents, employees, contractors, and sponsors, from and against all claims, suits, actions, losses, damages, liabilities, costs, and expenses of any kind, for harm, injury, or death to Volunteer or any other person, or for damage to or theft of property which may arise directly or indirectly from Volunteer’s participation in the activities and, in case of such harm, injury, or death, Volunteer waives any and all claims against the District, and its officers, agents, employees, contractors, and sponsors. In the event of a real or apparent emergency for which medical treatment or hospitalization for the Volunteer may be necessary, Volunteer authorizes District, including District’s staff, to obtain any medical treatment or hospitalization as they believe to be necessary and proper for Volunteer’s immediate care and welfare. I agree that the District may use, publish, copy, print, copyright, or electronically transfer Volunteer's name or likeness for District marketing purposes. Volunteer understands they will not be compensated for any volunteer service with the District. Volunteer understands and agrees that this is a release of liability and indemnity, and it is intended to be as broad and inclusive as permitted by law. If any portion is held invalid, the remainder shall continue in full force and legal effect, to the maximum extent permitted by law. I acknowledge that I have read, fully understand, accept, and agree to the above provisions and I recognize that the District is relying on such acceptance in permitting Volunteer to engage in District activities.
