Wednesday, Jan. 15, Horry County Police Capt. Jason Ferrer presented an active attacker civilian response course at the Carolina Forest Civic Association meeting. He said the three stages of response are denial, deliberation and decisive management. It is important to get out of denial mode and into deliberation mode as soon as possible.
