    As a condition of any snow removal assistance (the "Activity") I may receive from the Butte-Silver Bow, I hereby recognize and acknowledge that any volunteer snow shoveler performing the Activity is not an agent, servant, or employee of Butte-Silver Bow. The Volunteer is not performing the Activity at the behest of, or under the control or supervision of the Butte-Silver Bow, but rather at my request of and under my exclusive control and direction. Therefore, I agree that any claims or suits that I might pursue against the Volunteer as a result of my participation in the Activity specified herein, including but not limited to, claims of property damage, personal injury, and intentional tort, are my sole responsibility. I release the Butte-Silver Bow, its Departments, and its officers, employees, attorneys, and agents from any judgments, payments, damages and claims, including all costs, expenses and attorneys' fees incurred by me in pursuing any such claim. I further release the Butte-Silver Bow, all its Departments, and its officers, employees, attorneys, and agents, from any liability whatsoever for any and all acts or omissions of the Volunteer, under any theory of vicarious liability or otherwise. I further agree to assume the full risk of any property damage or personal injuries which I may sustain as a result of participating in the Activity. I hereby waive, release and discharge any and all claims for property damage and personal injury, including death, which I may have, or which may hereafter accrue to me, as a result of my participation in the Activity. I agree to indemnify and to hold harmless the City, its Departments, and its officers, employees, attorneys, and agents from any loss, liability, damage, cost, or expense which they may incur as a result of my death, injury, or property damage that I sustain, while participating in the Activity. This waiver, release and assumption of risk is binding upon my heirs and assigns. I further agree that if any claim or suit is pursued by me or on my behalf as a result of injuries from the Activity specified herein against the Butte-Silver Bow, its Departments, and its officers, employees, attorneys, and agents, I will indemnify and hold harmless these parties from all judgments, payments, damages and claims, including all costs, expenses and attorneys' fees incurred by these parties in defending against such claim. I HAVE CAREFULLY READ THIS WAIVER AND FULLY UNDERSTAND ITS CONTENTS. I AM AWARE THAT THIS IS A RELEASE OF LIABILITY, AND A CONTRACT BETWEEN THE BUTTE-SILVER BOW BEND AND ME, AND I SIGN IT OF MY FREE WILL.
