Killabakh Emergency Plan and the Killabakh Emergency Radio Network (KERN) Town Meeting
20th February, 7pm
Please attend and help us make our community an organised, committed and safer place to live. This is an essential and vital meeting because we need your input, feedback and approval to take the next steps in implementing the Killabakh Emergency Plan and the Killabakh Emergency Radio Network (KERN).
We are holding very important meeting at 7pm on Tuesday 20th February in the Killabakh Hall to launch The Killabakh Emergency Management Plan and to discuss the Killabakh Emergency Radio Network (KERN) and the establishment of Our Community Communication Tree
Residents are encouraged to support this initiative which we hope will make us better prepared as a community to respond to emergencies in the future.
Refreshments will be provided.
Killabakh Community Hub
Every Thursday Morning 9.30-10.30am
Gold Coin Donation
A weekly community gathering for a cuppa and a piece of cake. Come and have a chat with the locals, buy and sell some locally grown fresh produce and handmade preserves, or just come to say hi. Bring the excess from your garden, and things you've made yourself, if you'd like to sell something.
KERN Radio Checks
KERN practise sessions and radio checks
Fridays 5:30PM - 6:30PM
Killabakh Radio Wave
Beginning Fri 15 Dec 23, the Killabakh Rural Fire Brigade UHF Base Station will be on air between 17:30 and 18:30 (5.30PM to 6.30PM) each Friday afternoon to enable members of KERN to test their radios and make calls to the station.
This is a wonderful start to what we hope will be a valuable component of our community resilience and emergency plan. We aim for it to be a mechanism that will enable us to help our own family and our fellow community members in the next emergency/disaster event in our community.
Please use the Friday afternoon sessions to practice your use of the radio and to become familiar with it. I recommend that you call in every Friday afternoon or as often as you can so that you get used to hearing different voices. Practice makes perfect.
Please do the following:
Commit to participating as often as possible on a weekly basis because this will give you confidence and trust in the system.
What this will achieve is:
You will get to know that you can speak confidently with Killabakh Base (the fire station) you will also get to know who else on the network that you can hear and talk to.
From here on in, I will invite KERN users to not only call Killabakh Base but to call each other and practice using your callsign and doing radio checks with each other. Just remember the procedures:
- KERN is a SIMPLEX network. This means we all talk and listen on the same channel, so only one station can talk at any one time.
- Listen out before you transmit
- Make sure no one else is speaking before you speak
- Press the button for a split second before you speak because you do not want to cut off your first words
- Start with the callsign of the station you are calling and then say your callsign; eg:
"Killabakh Base THIS IS wun too fife six Comboyne Road, radio check Over", or
"wun too fife six THIS IS wun sev-en too too Comboyne Road, radio check over"
- When responding to another station who has requested a radio check; eg:
"wun sev-en too too Comboyne Road THIS IS wun ait fow-er Yarnold Road, loud and clear OVER."
Please refer to the attached Phonetic Alphabet and keep a printout of it next to your radio.
For more information and to register your participation please contact Brian Willey

'BrainStrength is a federal government funded older adults physical and mental wellbeing group program delivered by Kinetic Medicine. Over 8 weekly sessions, our exercise physiologists will run physical activity sessions and workshop based information sessions to help equip individuals to learn more about managing their mental and physical wellbeing through using simple, easy to implement strategies.

We are hoping to run a local program at the Killabakh Hall from the end of February, initial 1-1 appointments would need to be organised with each participant before the start date at our Wingham clinic (18 Isabelle street) to ensure they are safe and able to join the group. These are all covered by the program and have not out of pocket expense.
I’d be more than happy to discuss further details, I’m keen to talk to those who might be able to help me reach Killabakh locals that this would help.
