Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

I am gathering information on methods municipalities and other organizations use to evaluate the performance of uniformed fire department employees (field personnel).

If your agency (any fire department) BOTH evaluates personnel on a yearly or other periodic basis AND employs some type of form or other structured tool (“instrument”) to conduct and document those evaluations, I would greatly appreciate your responses to a brief questionnaire.

You will be asked a maximum of 15 questions, mostly check boxes (with the option to comment if you wish).

The questionnaire is here:

Your answers will be used in a research project for the Executive Fire Officer program and available at the National Fire Academy for anyone interested. I will also be glad to share all I learn directly with any and all respondents.

Thank you,

Ryland Kendrick
