"The problem was that the Glendale Fire Department has not conducted an assessment of its pediatric drowning prevention program. The purpose of this research was to conduct an assessment of the Glendale Fire Department Pediatric Drowning Prevention Program. Descriptive research methodology was used to complete this project. Four research questions directed the examination and assessment of the pediatric drowning prevention program: (a) What evaluation process did the Glendale Fire Department utilize to identify pediatric drowning as a community risk; (b) What programs did the Glendale Fire Department implement to reduce pediatric drowning; (c) How has the Glendale Fire Department evaluated the pediatric drowning prevention program; and (d) What is the correlation between the drowning events from 2007-2010 and the Glendale Fire Department Pediatric Drowning Prevention Program?"
