MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. -- Some firefighters in Bradenton are hoping their music video skills will help them win $10,000.

Good Morning America asked fire departments from around the country to participate in its "GMA 5-Alarm Firefighter Challenge". Southern Manatee Fire Rescue submitted a music video, and they've been notified that they are one of nine semi-finalists.

Their video will appear on GMA later this week. 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.

    Has anybody figured out how to vote? The link to Good Morning America's website goes to their Yahoo account and I sure can't figure out how to vote.
