New User Details

I, as leader of this group, agree that the group members will abide by all applicable Florida Park Service (FPS) rules, policies, and standards governing volunteers. I acknowledge it is my responsibility to become familiar with the contents of the FPS Volunteer Handbook. A copy may be provided by the park, or can be found here. The individuals named on the Group Participant List (attached) will provide services as described above. I have secured permission from the parents of all the volunteers in the group under the age 18. I have emergency contact information for each participant.

I understand that volunteers on duty for the Department may have photographs or videos taken and the materials may be used to promote the Department. No further releases are required.

I understand that I, as group leader, may be asked to provide date of birth, driver's license number or other proof of identification, and/or social security number at a later date. I certify that all of the information contained in this application is true and correct. I authorize the Florida State Parks to verify the information provided.

Volunteers are not considered to be employees of the State of Florida. Volunteers are covered by state liability protection (Section 768.28, F.S.) and by workers' compensation (Chapter 440, F.S.). No other benefits of collective bargaining agreements apply. I understand my volunteer performance will be evaluated. I also understand my service can be terminated by the FPS, or I can terminate my volunteer status, at any time, with or without cause, and I do not have the right to grieve or appeal. I understand that volunteers on duty for the Department may be photographed or videoed and the materials may be used to promote the Department. No further releases are required.
