I understand that there are dangers inherent in participating in the cleanup of our roadways including, but not limited to, bodily injury, disability and death.  I understand that participating in this activity may involve risks that include inclement weather or excessive heat, falling debris, proximity to damaged trees or structures, accidents while traveling, injuries from the use of power tools and machinery, equipment problems or failures, proximity to vehicles or equipment (including those producing debris or dust), contact with and actions of other participants, slips/trips/falls, musculoskeletal injuries, harm from contact with sharp objects or tools, contact with chemicals or irritants, exposure to wildlife (including snakes and biting insects), among others.  I choose for myself or for my child to participate in this activity despite the risks.

I acknowledge all risks of injury, illness, and death and affirm that I have assumed all responsibility of injury, illness, or death in any way connected with participation in this activity.  I also agree for myself and for any child participant to follow all rules and procedures that apply to the activity and to follow the reasonable instructions of County staff or other supervisors of the activity.

In return for the opportunity described above, I agree for myself and for my heirs, assigns, executors, and administrators to release, waive, and discharge any legal rights I may have to seek payment or relief of any kind from Wake County, its employees or its agents for injury, illness, or death resulting from the activity.  If I am allowing a child to participate in the activity, I agree that I am a parent, legal guardian, or am otherwise responsible for the child who is participating, and I agree that I will personally supervise the child during the activity.  I also agree not to sue Wake County, its employees, or its agents and agree to indemnify Wake County for all claims, damages, losses, or expenses, including attorney’s fees, if a suit is filed concerning an injury, illness, or death to me or to my child resulting from participation in this activity

I understand that neither Wake County, nor any Wake County municipality provide insurance or worker’s compensation coverage for me or for my child.  I have read this document thoroughly and understand that by checking the box I am waiving legal rights.
