Parking brakes are all operated by a cable, which you tighten by pulling the lever. If the car has discs brakes all around, the problem is almost always that the cable is rusted in the sheath. If the car has rear drum brakes, the problem can also be a jammed lever inside the drum.

How do you adjust the emergency brake on a 2004 GMC Sierra?

If the parking brake doesn't hold my guess is the parking brake shoes are shot. Also inspect the parking brake cables, they may be stuck and in need of replacement. The parking brake is designed to hold the vehicle in a parked position and not to be used as an emergency brake to stop a vehicle.
