As Mexico Faces its worst earthquake ever and Irma on a path through Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and beyond, Wright Enterprises extends thoughts and prayers. For those with warnings, heed the directions of officials and be prepared to care for yourself and family for days with food, water, medical items, temporary shelter and other emergency needs. First rule of disaster response is not to panic. Easier said than done, but you need all your wits about you as I recall from my American Red Cross training. Stay on plan as best you can. God be with all who are facing extreme circumstances. Sincerely, Jackie Wright, Wright Enterprises
