Had a kite wrap up today in some high winds. Turned out okay. These things dont happen often but you've really got to always be ready to instinctively react when they do.

When two (or more?) kites wrap you should prepare yourself to release via chicken loop quick release.
A. If the kites stay airborn for a bit holler to the other kiter "release your kite" if you are able as they might freeze and not react, if you can avoid it you dont just want to let your rig go and have the other guy hooked up to two powered and uncontrolable kites.
B. If the kites wrap and immediately start looping powered use your safety release and let it go.
C. If you release your kite to the leash line and the other kite is still pulling you be prepared to use your secondary leash release to let the whole thing go.

If you're not sure where your quick release or secondary leash release are ask your retailer. If your rig does not have these features get a new rig.

And consistently use your releases, if its on land with the kite not attached or at the end of a session. The more you do it, the more muscle memory and instinct you'll have and the better prepared you'll be to handle an emergency.
