I, for myself and my heirs, executors, administrators and assigns, hereby release, indemnify and hold harmless Catholic Charities of Acadiana, local governments, State of Louisiana, the organizers, sponsors, and supervisors of all disaster preparedness, response and recovery activities from all liability for any and all risk of damage or bodily injury or death that may occur to me (including any injury caused by negligence), in connection with any volunteer effort in which I participate. I likewise hold harmless from liability any person transporting me to or from any relief activity. In addition, relief officials have permission to utilize any photographs or videos taken of me for publicity or training purposes. I will abide by all safety instructions and information provided to me during relief efforts.
Further, I expressly agree that this release, waiver, and indemnity agreement is intended to be as broad and inclusive as permitted by the State of Louisiana and that if any portion thereof is held invalid, it is agreed that the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full legal force and effect.
I have no known physical or mental condition that would impair my capability to participate fully as intended or expected of me.
I have carefully read the foregoing release and indemnification and understand the contents thereof and sign this release as my own free act; background check prior to volunteering may be required.
