I understand that the area I am being allowed to enter is used for military training. I understand that in allowing me to enter areas of JBER, the Department of the Air Force is not representing such area free of man-made hazards. As a consequence of extensive use for military training, I am likely to encounter related hazards such as excavated foxholes, pits, barbed wire, communications wire and unexploded munitions. I understand that my safety requires that I remain vigilant.


Additionally, I recognize and understand there are additional inherent risks associated with my particular activity, to include personal injury, personal property damage and even death. I understand that said activity could involve falling trees, dangerous tools, including chainsaws, motor vehicles and other items and activities that have a high probability of causing harm. I also recognize that the acts of other individuals, through negligence, recklessness or otherwise, could cause personal injury, property damage or even death. I acknowledge that I am voluntarily participating in recreational activities with a full understanding and appreciation of these potential dangers.
