UPDATE: Voting is open until 3pm Friday at https://gma.yahoo.com/. The poll is in the right hand column on that page.

BRADENTON, Fla. --  ABC's Good Morning America put out the call to firefighters across the country to make their own lip-dub videos for a chance to compete for a $10,000 prize for their department, and a Bradenton crew hopes their video makes the cut.

Southern Manatee Fire Rescue submitted a music video to the "GMA 5-Alarm Firefighter Challenge", and they've been notified that they are one of nine semi-finalists.

Their video is scheduled to appear on GMA on Friday. Audiences will vote for their favorites.

The departments with the top three videos will send representatives to be on GMA next week. Those firefighters will compete against each other in physical challenges and trivia competitions.

ABC 7's Todd Dunn is talking to some of the stars of the video, and will have a report tonight on ABC 7 News.
