Wednesday, July 2, 2014 Lafayette Township Fire Protection District entered in video competition put on by ABC’s “Good Morning America”. We submitted a two minute lip sync video to the song by Capital Cities “Safe and Sound” and a 200 word essay that describes what our fire department is most proud of, and how your fire department would spend the prize money. If we win the contest, we have chosen to donate the money to WHAS Crusade For Children. The producers of “GMA” will pick six semi-finalist.
If we are semi-finalist, GMA will show our video verses another fire department semi-finalist on their morning show between July 9-11 in a head to head voting battle. The day they air our submission, you can vote on our video between 8 A.M to 3 P.M. E.T on the Good Morning America website. If we receive the most votes from the public we become one of three finalist and head to New York to tape two segments for “Good Morning America” and compete in some challenges to earn points. We will also submit a “Firehouse Recipe” that will also be voted on by the public.
As of now, we have been contacted by GMA producers who are very interested in our submission. We’ll keep you up to date on our website and social media pages how we are doing and when and where to vote.
