工黨議員Fabian Breckels說，人員配置水平是 "可怕的"，並詢問是否可以通過社交媒體警告塔樓居民有點燃明火的風險。
"The delivery of the Bristol City Council emergency management system depends on a small but skilled Civil Protection Unit, and the team has worked incredibly long hours over the last three years.
"It's the team that activates the council's emergency responses, whether that's setting up rest centres, calling out emergency carpenters, closing roads, whatever the appropriate response might be.
"We're just about maintaining volunteer levels but it's becoming increasingly difficult and many of our volunteers aren't in a position to get up at 3am and respond to a call because we've had a fire in a high rise.
However, in a report prepared ahead of the meeting, he said despite the uncertain times and small team "the internal controls in place to mitigate [risk] are strong".
Labour councillor Fabian Breckels said the staffing levels were "terrifying" and asked whether tower block residents could be warned of the risk of lighting open flames, potentially through social media.
He said: "Given the cladding issues in some of our flats - that will take years to resolve and there's even shortages of things like scaffolding - what can we do to encourage people not to use naked flames and put themselves and their neighbours at risk? Could we do a new social media campaign?"
Mr Gillman replied: "We don't have anything planned, and it's not clear what benefit or return you get from the effort you put in.
"The people likely to use naked flames, who are driven to it because they can't afford their energy bills, probably aren't that susceptible to a social media campaign."
