Wrap them in aluminium foil and put them in an insulated bag or styrofoam cooler with some very hot ugly bags of mostly water. Or you could use river rocks heated in the oven.

Reheated and crispy is a difficult thing to do.

The most success I've had is reheating items as quickly as you can on the highest heat possible.

Have you got a cooktop?

Get a pan/cooking surface up to a high heat and toss them on stirring them contently until they are up to a temperature that's acceptable for them to be consumed.

And remember that it's a party so if things aren't perfect people understand. Just get as close as you can.

Is there an outlet there? Bring along your $20 toaster oven and reheat them in batches (maybe double stack them in the toaster oven). You can then place them in styrofoam covered serving trays, they keep food warm, for a little while.

Walmart sells small stacks of square foam serving trays with lids.

That was my thought too, just bring your toaster oven to work.

He could re-heat them in the toaster oven and use green romaine lettuce as a bed for the wings to lie on in the foam trays, just like they do on those TV BBQ grill master cooking contests.

Toaster ovens can also set off detectors in the hospital.

How can it set off a smoke detector if there's no fire? The wings would have to be burning.

Some people can be a little careless with these appliances.

It's very important that you find and follow the rules and regulations about what is allowed in a healthcare facility BEFORE you drag appliances in for a party. It's not your ability using the appliances it's whether the official bodies who do site inspections will allow them and let the facility keep it's accreditation to keep it's doors open. Employees who break those rules are soon unemployed.

Until we know what will be allowed at the party site, it's hard to come up with a fix that will be the best.

Well, no kidding, but that's not exactly the typical result. When used properly, a toaster oven won't set off a smoke alarm so it doesn't make sense to say "we can't use a toaster oven because it will" set it off.

In any case, dry heat is needed to re-crisp fried or crispy baked foods, so I think the OP needs to adjust expectations accordingly.
