Is there any reason ESA would not give the exact building address for an incident like this? It strikes me as a little odd that they’re making a public announcement, but withholding the full location.

It seems to be the ESA’s usual approach, so there is probably a good reason. I’m just not sure what it is.

I wonder what the purpose in reporting the exact address would be?

I doubt it is ever the practice of any of the emergency agencies to be publicly reporting each address where an emergency attendance takes place, for obvious reasons.
