West Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS) is also urging residents to take care and stay away from flood control areas, rivers, streams and other waterways.
WMAS Assistant Chief Ambulance Officer, Craig Cooke, said: “We would also advise motorists to exercise extreme caution and not attempt driving through flooded roads.
“Not heeding the many safety warnings puts lives at risk, including ambulance staff and other emergency service personnel called to provide a service in these most challenging of conditions.”
The public have been reminded that 999 should only be called for life-threatening emergencies.
For less urgent cases of illness, injury or pre-existing conditions, people should consider alternative medical assistance such as their GP, NHS 111, walk-in centre or pharmacist.
