Southern Manatee Fire Rescue has message of "Thank You" for community

Firefighters with the Southern Manatee Fire Rescue created a lip-sync video for Good Morning America's "5 Alarm Challenge Video Contest" for a chance to win $10,000.

In the video entry on YouTube, the firefighters said, "This shows that we enjoy our jobs and don't mind "shaking it" every now and then!"

Southern Manatee Fire Rescue were semifinalist in the contest and were featured on GMA this Friday.

Voting started, but they fell short in the final hour and where eliminated from the competition.

But they didn't let the defeat keep them down.

"Yes, we fell a few votes short in the end but the loss pales in comparison to the extraordinary outpouring of support that we witnessed for the men and women of our fire department.  This past week has been a ride that we will not soon forget!  We are truly blessed and honored to serve such a wonderful community."
