Gatlinburg, TN Wildfires

Throughout this week we have watched wild fires ravage through the Gatlinburg, Tennessee area reducing homes and businesses to piles of ash. We mourn for the lives lost and feel the grief of those who have lost so much.

Fortney & Weygandt, Inc. is no stranger to such disasters. As a construction general contractor, we have been called upon in the past to help businesses and communities rebuild. When Hurricane Sandy hit the east coast in 2012 leaving devastating damage in its wake, we were there to assist a national pharmacy chain restore the availability of critical healthcare supplies to the residents of Rockaway, New York by constructing a temporary “drug store” which Fortney & Weygandt crews accomplished in just three days. Early this year we stood ready to assist with reconstruction of businesses in Missouri and Illinois due to the destructive flooding in the Midwest. So we understand the need and sense of loss now be experienced by the people of Gatlinburg.
