That is normal if you have not turned off the water valve to the unit

It just looks like a standard water spigot. There should be one by the driver, then 2 in the engine compartment (1 on each side).

Blew right rear tire.
Scratched right side of bus.
I waiting for tire services to come out. They only have 2 new tires.
Is it best to put each new one on out side on both rears?
Rather than 2 new on one side.

Thanks
Raul

I'd replace the tires on one side, and plan to replace the others soon.

without knowing what kind of bus tyou have its hard for me to tell.. but i'll take a guess that its a standard school bus.
theres 2 water faucet knobs under the hood.. if you turn them off that will stop the flow of coolant to those heater units and help keep you cooler driving.

wowsers thats not good!!! make sure the tire service checks the pressures on all your tires.. and look them over... these busses often sit for long time and tires can dry-rot... on my other bus I replaced all 6 because they were startinfg to get pretty cracked...

glad everyone is Ok and the bus is going to be fine too..
