Assumption of Risks/Exculpatory Clause: I am fully aware that there are special dangers and risks inherent in this activity, including, but not limited to, serious physical injury, death or other harmful consequences, that may arise directly or indirectly from participation in the Procession and harm myself, my family members, and my property.
Being informed of these risks and in consideration of being allowed to participate, I assume all risk of injury, damage, and harm to myself, my minor children or dependents, and my property arising from my participation. I individually and on behalf of any children, dependents, heirs, and executors agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the City, its officials, employees, volunteers, and agents from all causes of action, suits, claims, and fees for injury or death to persons, for loss or damage to property, or other consequences arising from my participation, except those arising from the City’s sole negligence, and waive any right of recovery against the City for personal injury or death to myself or my minor children or dependents, damage to my property, or other consequences occurring from participation in the Procession
In consideration of my participation in this event, I further agree:
I have read the Veterans Vehicle Procession Participant Rules (listed above) and agree to abide by them.
That I am the driver of the vehicle that will be in the Procession and I possess a valid drivers’ license.
That the vehicle I am driving in the Procession is covered by at least the minimum auto insurance coverage required by law for the vehicle.
That the City of Auburn does not provide liability, uninsured or underinsured motorist, collision, medical payments, or personal injury protection, or any other type of auto insurance coverage to participants of the Procession.
That I and/or persons in my family involved in any way in the Procession will fully comply with all federal, state, county and City ordinances, codes, rules, regulations, executive and/or emergency orders related to Covid-19, and to strictly follow the protocols of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and/or the Washington State Department of Health, related to COVID-19 and/or any other threats to public health.
That effective physical distancing and proper hygiene can only be accomplished through personal responsibility and it is each person’s individual duty to protect themselves, their families and the community, and doing so is the sole responsibility of myself, not the responsibility of the City.
That COVID-19 is highly contagious and there is a risk that my child or children and I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 while participating in the Procession and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death. I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including but not limited to City of Auburn employees and volunteers, and I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless and indemnify the City of Auburn, its employees, agents, and representatives, from any and all claims, including all liabilities, claims, actions, damages, costs or expenses of any kind arising out of these risks to myself and my child(ren) whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after my participation in the Procession.
