In 2021 the Katanning, Kent and Woodanilling Local Emergency Management Committee identified the Katanning Leisure Centre as a potential site for a Regional Welfare Centre in the event of a serious emergency.
To ensure the Centre is adequately equipped for this, the Rotary Club of Katanning successfully secured a grant of $96,000 from the Rotary Australia World Community Service Limited Bushfire Relief Fund, for the purpose of purchasing a generator for the Centre which will be an emergency back up power supply. The Centre has also received an upgrade to its public internet facilities, allowing it to be activated during an emergency.
At the Ordinary Council Meeting held in April 2022, Council agreed to provide the shortfall of funds to complete the project.
On Wednesday 31 May 2023, Shire of Katanning Staff, Councillors, Rotary Club of Katanning and Volunteer Bushfire Brigade Members gathered for a photo to commemorate the completion of the project.
