She has been credited with playing a key role in the successful operation of the department. Kalin Montevideo is 36 and married to Door County Deputy Troy Montevideo. She was chosen for the position of Assistant Fire Chief by the Sturgeon Bay Fire and Police Commission after a thorough review of the operations, staff and management of the Sturgeon Bay Fire Department.
