Robert Whitaker will be sworn in May 6 as the second chief of the 15-year-old North Shore Fire Department.

Whitaker, a deputy chief in the department, was chosen this week by the North Shore Fire Commission.

The other applicant was Andrew Harris, also a deputy chief for the department.

Whitaker, a Mequon resident with 18 years of firefighting experience, replaces David Berousek. He resigned in February for health reasons.

Berousek had been chief since the department, which serves Bayside, Brown Deer, Fox Point, Glendale, River Hills, Shorewood and Whitefish Bay, was formed in 1995.
