LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A special fair was held this morning to help make sure people in southern Indiana are ready when severe weather hits.

"Earthquakes, hurricanes, floods -- things of that nature," said Chris Fust, a representative of the Preparedness Fair. "You don't know when you might have to leave in a moment's notice."

The Preparedness Fair is all about preparing for those emergencies -- and showing southern Indiana residents how to survive. It was held today in Jeffersonville. There were several booths set up -- including one explaining how to survive on a 72-hour emergency food kit.

"It's important to be prepared," said Tonya Snow, a representative of the fair. "We have so many examples of things going wrong in our world with tornadoes and other things that this is a good place to be."

So what should you have in your emergency kit? Organizers say food, water, clothing and important documents are just a few of the items.

The Red Cross also held a blood drive at the fair.

This was the second year for the event.
