An Oklahoma man has invented a product to help first responders reach people in need as swiftly as possible.
Johnathan Harrison, a former paramedic from Tulsa, tells Fox News Digital the idea for The Locator 911 was sparked after he had responded to a cardiac arrest call in 2009 involving a 2-year-old child.

"That call has haunted me and fueled my passion to bring The Locator 911 to a life-saving reality," he added.
