Background Information

The City of Westminster is concerned about the safety of its volunteers while on duty (whether on or off premises), the safety of its constituents (staff, community, etc.) and the protection of its assets and reputation. To reduce these risks, prospective and, as applicable, current volunteers of the City will undergo a criminal background check that complies with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). Volunteers are treated as applicants under the FCRA.

The City of Westminster has selected an approved background screening provider, Sterling Volunteers. All facilities and affiliates are required to use this approved provider for background screens and must comply with the provisions of this policy. Any questions or special considerations concerning this policy should be directed to the City’s Volunteer Coordinator.

This policy applies to all prospective and current volunteers (with rescreens occurring annually after initial check expires after a period of 1 year).

*A background check is not required for potential volunteers under the age of 18.*

By submitting this application, you agree to a background check at the discretion of the City.

Volunteer Westminster Agreement

RELEASE, WAIVER OF LIABILITY AND INDEMNIFICATION FOR VOLUNTEER WESTMINSTER AGREEMENT
I, ON BEHALF OF MYSELF (AND MY CHILD), IN CONSIDERATION FOR PARTICIPATION IN THE ACTIVITY, HEREBY RELEASE AND WAIVE ANY CLAIM OF LIABILITY AGAINST THE CITY OF WESTMINSTER, ITS EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, AND REPRESENTATIVES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO CLAIMS FOR LOSS, DAMAGE, ILLNESS, OR INJURY OCCURRING TO MYSELF, MY CHILD, OR ANY PERSONAL PROPERTY WHILE I, OR MY CHILD, PARTICIPATE IN THE ACTIVITY, WHETHER THE CLAIM RESULTS FROM THE NEGLIGENCE OF THE CITY, ITS EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, OR REPRESENTATIVES, OR FROM SOME OTHER CAUSE.
I understand there may be risks associated with participation in the Volunteer Program and I recognize that some activities may involve physical activity and physical exertion. Whether done individually or in groups, volunteer shifts may include the risk of serious bodily injury, including permanent disability, paralysis and death. These injuries may be caused by my action or inaction, or my child’s action or inaction, the action or inaction of other participants or the instructor, or the conditions in which the volunteer shift takes place. Equipment used may break, fail, or malfunction despite reasonable maintenance and use. Some of the equipment used may inflict injuries even when used as intended. Many but not all of these risks are inherent in this and other activities. These are some, but not all, of the risks inherent in the Volunteer program; a complete listing of inherent and other risks is not possible. There are also risks that cannot be anticipated.
I further understand that I am legally responsible for my, or my child’s, actions including, but not limited to, any damage to private or public property and/or personal injury or death that I, or my child, cause; and that I am legally responsible for my own, or my child’s, welfare and actions, including personal needs and medical expenses.
I understand that volunteer supervisors use their best judgment in determining how to assess risk and skill level and how to react to a variety of circumstances including medical emergencies, but that supervisors may misjudge such circumstances, an individual's capabilities, the risks involved, or the like.
I ACKNOWLEDGE AND ASSUME THE RISKS INVOLVED IN THE VOLUNTEER PROGRAM AND FOR ANY LOSS, DAMAGE, ILLNESS, INJURY OR DEATH RESULTING FROM SUCH RISKS FOR MYSELF (AND MY CHILD) AS WELL AS ANY PERSONAL PROPERTY. I BELIEVE MYSELF (AND/OR MY CHILD) TO BE PHYSICALLY ABLE AND QUALIFIED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE VOLUNTEER PROGRAM. I HEREBY AGREE TO INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS AND COVENANT NOT TO SUE THE CITY OF WESTMINSTER, ITS EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, AND REPRESENTATIVES WITH RESPECT TO ANY CLAIM THAT MAY BE ASSERTED BY OR ON BEHALF OF ME (OR MY CHILD) AS A RESULT OF ANY LOSS, DAMAGE, ILLNESS, OR INJURY SUFFERED WHILE PARTICIPATING IN THE VOLUNTEER PROGRAM.
I HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THE ABOVE AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS DOCUMENT.
