"The problem was that the Copley Fire Department did not perform post-incident analysis for the fire and rescue division. The purpose of this research was to identify means and resources to appropriately perform post-incident analysis on fire and rescue emergencies. To determine this, an action research method was used to answer the four research questions: 1) Can the Copley Fire Department benefit from a post-incident analysis program? 2) How can a post-incident analysis program be designed? 3) When should a post-incident analysis be performed? and 4) what information should be gathered to perform a post-incident analysis?"
