North Metro Fire will do its best to match you with your preferences, but due to numerous factors, the fire district cannot guarantee you'll be placed according to your requests.

Having had full opportunity to read and consider this Release of Liability and Assumption of Risk (“Release”) and to confer with legal counsel or other third parties regarding the important legal consequences of entering into this Release, I do assert that I am voluntarily entering into this Release without any pressure, compulsion or duress by any third party or the District.
I intend and agree that this Release shall apply to all instances where I enter in, on or over the District’s property and/or facilities, ride in a District apparatus or vehicle, accompany District personnel on emergency or non-emergency responses, and/or participate in other District matters (collectively, “District Activities”).
In consideration for being permitted to participate in one or more District Activities, I individually and on behalf of my family members, personal representatives and heirs, hereby release, waive, and discharge the District and its officers, directors, agents, employees, and representatives (collectively “District Parties”) from any and all liability, causes of action under any theory at law or equity, claims and demands, damages, costs, expenses, and compensation, arising from or relating to any injury (including death) or damages to person or property incurred as a result of participating in one or more District Activities.
Participating in one or more District Activities is inherently dangerous and may result in severe permanent injury or death and can result in exposure to hazardous situations including, but not limited to, forms of physical violence, explosions, hazardous materials exposure, falls, dog bites, motor vehicle accidents, and infectious diseases.
I, individually and on behalf of my family members, personal representatives and heirs, having read and thoroughly understood the above NOTICE OF INHERENTLY DANGEROUS ACTIVITY, acknowledge and agree that participating in one or more District Activities is inherently dangerous, can result in severe permanent injury or death, and can cause exposure to hazardous situations including, but not limited to, forms of physical violence, explosions, hazardous materials exposure, falls, dog bites, motor vehicle accidents, and infectious diseases. I hereby knowingly assume any and all risks associated with or arising from participating in one or more District activities.
I understand that the District's insurance does not provide coverage for any aspect of participating in one or more District Activities. I expressly assume all responsibility for securing appropriate insurance coverage. I also represent that I am mentally and physically fit to participate in one or more District Activities.
In consideration for being permitted to participate in one or more District Activities, I agree to indemnify and defend the District and the District Parties from and against any loss, liability, damage, claim, cost or expense (including reasonable attorneys' fees, costs and expenses) of any kind or nature whatsoever resulting from my participating in one or more District Activities. I agree that the District shall have sole discretion in selecting legal counsel even though I am solely responsible for the payment of the defense costs.
This Release is not intended to, and does not in any manner, limit the privileges and protections afforded the District and the District Parties under federal and state law, including but not limited to, the Colorado Governmental Immunity Act, §24-10-101, C.R.S. et seq.
Colorado law governs this Agreement. Jurisdiction and venue shall lie exclusively in the District Court for Broomfield County. This Agreement is the entire agreement between the District and me, and there are no oral or collateral agreements or understandings. This Agreement may only be amended by a document signed by the District and me. This Release is not assignable. If any provision is held invalid or unenforceable all other provisions shall continue in full force and effect. Waiver of a breach of this Release shall not operate or be construed as a waiver of any subsequent breach of this Release. This Release shall enure to the benefit of, and be binding upon, the District and me and my family members, representatives, and heirs. This Release is not intended to, and shall not, confer rights on any person or entity that is not a party to this Release. In any dispute arising from or relating to this Release or my participation in one or more District Activities, the prevailing party shall be awarded its/his/her reasonable attorneys' fees, costs and expenses, including any attorneys' fees, costs, and expenses incurred in executing or collecting upon any judgment, order, or award. This Release may be executed in several counterparts and by facsimile or electronic pdf, each of which shall be deemed an original and all of which shall constitute one valid, binding document.
