Why can't they come fix it? It's called an emergency call, that's what they do. I can't believe a foot of snow is stopping any legitimate HVAC repairman from coming to your house. I would try calling someone else.
Ummm.... just turn off the gas by the pilot light (there's a knob just for that), or do what the other guy said, if it's electric, and kill the breaker, or just unplug it.
Electric heating isn't usually plugged in. It's wired in. And if they live in an apartment they may not have access to the breaker which the heat is running on. Some apartments have screwy systems. OP, FYL. Call a different repair company. It may cost a little more than the one you called, but it probably wont cost you as much as your electric bill will if you dont get it fixed.
open the windows and contribute to global warming. and start saving your money.
