McKinleyville man donates $10000 piece of safety equipment to DHHS


EUREKA, CA. – A community member donates a $10,000 piece of safety equipment to the Humboldt County Department of Health and Human Services.

Mark Rynearson of McKinleyville was recognized by Humboldt County Supervisors on Tuesday for his contribution of an Esco Biological Safety Cabinet to the Public Health laboratory.

The equipment is used to keep lab staff safe while testing materials for highly toxic pathogens, influenza, rabies and other dangerous contaminants.

Public Health’s current biological safety cabinet is 25-years-old, and needed replacement.

They say Rynearson’s donation will ‘provide many years of safe and accurate testing’.
