The Pakenham SES unit helped more than 20 bus passengers evacuate a bus after it became stuck in wheel-deep water on Tuesday 9 July.

Victoria Police and Ambulance Victoria members also attended the scene near the corner of McGregor Road and Greenhills Road at about 2pm, with 24 passengers safely exiting the bus with SES assistance or exited themselves.

No injuries were reported and the SES cleared the area by 2.30pm.

A VICSES spokesperson said drivers of any vehicle should not drive through floodwaters.

“It’s never worth the risk,” the spokesperson said.
