I understand that my volunteer activities associated with the 2024 PIT Count may expose me to people with infectious diseases. I fully understand, appreciate, and assume the risks that are inherent in these volunteer activities.  I hereby assume the risk of bodily injury, illness, death, medical treatment, and/or property damage resulting from my volunteer surveyor activities, even if such result from the negligence of the District or TCP or its officers, directors, employees, or agents, or any of the coordinating entities.  


I hereby release, discharge, and agree to indemnify and hold the District, TCP, and/or any of the coordinating entities harmless from, and waive on behalf of myself and my heirs and personal representatives any and all causes of action, claims, demands, damages, costs, expenses, and/or compensation for damage or loss to myself and/or my property that may be caused by any act, or failure to act by the District, TCP, and/or any of the coordinating entities, or that may otherwise arise in any way in connection with the 2024 PIT Count. 


I understand that this release discharges the District, TCP, and/or any of the coordinating entities from any liability or claim that I or my heirs, personal representatives, or minors for whom I am responsible may have against the District or TCP with respect to bodily injury, illness, death, medical treatment, and/or property damage that may arise from or in connection with my volunteer activities.  This liability waiver, assumption of the risk, and release extends to the District and TCP together with all of its officers, directors, employees, or agents.
