I offer and agree to volunteer my services without compensation to assist the Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) in accordance with the following understandings:
Although this volunteer service will not confer on me the status of a State employee while acting within the scope of this agreement, I will be deemed to be as if I were a State employee for the purposes of the: Nevada Revised Statutes Chapter 41, which protects a State Employee from liability for injury or damage to others while the employee is acting within the scope of his or her duties; and State Industrial Insurance System, which authorizes compensation for work-related injury.
I am at least 18 years old (or if I am less than 18, my parent or guardian consents to this Agreement by signing below).
I understand that Volunteer projects will frequently be out of doors and that I will need to be in a physical condition adequate for normal outdoor physical activities. I will notify the Volunteer Coordinator of any significant change in my ability to do outdoor work. If special skills are required for a project, I will be trained before being assigned to that project.
If I or my minor son/daughter drive my personal vehicle to and from a volunteer project, I certify that the vehicle is properly insured by Nevada State Law.
I understand that this application may be subjected to a background investigation through state and local law enforcement agencies.
This agreement does not entitle me to operate a state vehicle unless specifically authorized.
