Evaluation Strategies for Fire Service Mentors, Instructors, and Officers

If I walked into the classroom and said……..I am glad some of you showed up.  My name is Paul Hasenmeier and I am a firefighter / paramedic and newly promoted lieutenant that is going to teach you everything you need to know about evaluating.  You might wonder what experience I have
evaluating employees.  Not much really,
but I did read the book sitting on your shelf left unread by you.


Your evaluation of me as an instructor would most likely be shattered by me not meeting your expectations even in the first minutes of the presentation.  Those expectations are
preconceived thoughts and ideals based on your previous experiences.  In retrospect, if I were to begin the
presentation looking sharp, professional, and able to relate to you, your
evaluation of me would most likely receive higher marks. 


The process of evaluating probationary employees, seasoned veterans, and students are different in their own right.  Whether mentors need measurable progress to report to their supervisor about a rookie, instructors need performance
measurement criteria to evaluate a student’s course completion, or officers
want to correct small glitches in performance and reinforce positive
efforts.  Through regular evaluation,
positive developmental achievement can be reached in any organization.
