The new fire chief at the Wind Lake Volunteer Fire Company, Don Catenacci, expects to stay in his current position despite allegations of assault and misconduct that have been alleged against him in Verona. Catenacci became Wind Lake’s part-time fire chief in September. He concurrently serves as the assistant chief at the Verona Fire Department in Dane County, which is also a part-time position. He was hired to work 20 hours a week for Wind Lake, which has a roster of 13 volunteers, one full-time firefighter who staffs the station Monday-Friday, and part-time affiliate emergency members — recent graduates of technical college fire and EMS training programs — who augment the department’s staffing.
