Ok being a fire chief and having been through a lot of these situations. I have some questions and maybe I can help.
Why can't you get out of your street?
Are you on a main road or secondary( side street) or a dead end.
Snowed in or tree down? If tree is down does it involve wires?
Can you answer any of these? I may be able to give you advice on speeding up the process.
