This Release and Waiver of Liability (“Release") releases the Unified Government of Athens-Clarke County ("ACCUG"), a body politic and corporate and a political subdivision of the State of Georgia being herein defined to include such governmental entity and all of ACCUG’s officials, directors, officers, employees, and agents. Volunteer desires to provide volunteer services for ACCUG.
Volunteer understands that the scope of Volunteer's relationship with ACCUG is limited to a volunteer position and that no compensation is expected in return for services provided by Volunteer, that ACCUG will not provide any benefits traditionally associated with employment to Volunteer, and that Volunteer is responsible for his own insurance coverage in the event of personal injury or illness as a result of Volunteer's services to ACCUG.
Waiver and Release: I, the Volunteer, do release and forever discharge, indemnify and hold harmless ACCUG and its successors and assigns from any and all liability, claims, and demands of whatever kind or nature, either in law or in equity, which arise or may hereafter arise from the volunteer services I provide to ACCUG. I understand and acknowledge that this Release discharges and indemnifies and holds harmless ACCUG from any liability or claim that I or others may have against ACCUG with respect to bodily injury, personal injury, illness, death, or property damage that may result from the volunteer services I provide to ACCUG or occurring while I am providing volunteer services.
Insurance: Further I understand that ACCUG does not assume any responsibility for or obligation to provide me with financial or other assistance, including but not limited to medical, health, or disability benefits or insurance of any nature in the event of my injury, illness, death or damage to property; or the injury, illness, death or damage to property that may occur while I am providing volunteer services. I expressly waive any such claim for compensation or liability on the part of ACCUG beyond what may be offered freely by ACCUG in the event of such injury or medical expenses incurred by me or others not party to this Release.
Medical Treatment: I hereby Release and forever discharge ACCUG from any claim whatsoever which arises or may hereafter arise on account of any first-aid treatment or other medical services rendered in connection with an emergency during my tenure as a volunteer with ACCUG.
Assumption of Risk: I understand that the services I provide to ACCUG may include activities that may be hazardous to me and others. As a volunteer, I hereby expressly assume the risk of injury or harm from volunteer activities and Release ACCUG from all liability for injury, illness, death or property damage resulting from the services I provide as a volunteer or occurring while I am providing volunteer services.
Other: As a volunteer, I expressly agree that this Release is intended to be as broad and inclusive as permitted by the laws of the State of Georgia and that this Release shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Georgia and the United States of America. I agree that in the event that any clause or provision of this Release is deemed invalid, the enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Release shall not be affected.
