David Kessler Phoenix from the Flame, an Update

David Kessler is the president of the North Hills Phoenix Association. The North Hills Phoenix Association is a non-profit organization of homeowners living in the North Hills area of California; near Oakland and Berkeley. The NHPA was formed in 1991 following a large fire that destroyed, among other things, David Kessler's home. Bad move, fire.

Now David Kessler has rebuilt his home, and he and his neighbors have mobilized a task force of community activists. They monitor safety and keep the local municipal services aware of their needs.

The NHPA held a press conference in October of 2006 announcing their report of how well the cities of Oakland and Berkeley responded to their recommendations following the 1991 Oakland Hills fire. The picture above is of David Kessler being covered by the local TV news channel.

If David Kessler looks familiar to you, it is because I wrote about him earlier. He is also a librarian at Berkeley. See the original story here.
