Clear nearby hydrants - If you know there's a fire hydrant nearby your home that's still covered in snow, it would be a good idea for you to clear it, or at least mark it so the fire department can clear it later.

Woonsocket Police Department on Nixle, which sends word of parking bans and traffic advisories straight to smart phones and computers,
