Cairns air pack Mfg Date?

They were manufactured in December 2000. Not much chance of getting packs of that standard replaced by AFG.

I was under the impression that Cairns/Global Secure SCBA had lost their NIOSH approval, and therefore their NFPA approval for fire use. It had to o with that fact that the closure of Global Secure left no factory-certified parts and repair stream for these packs; once they need flow testing or repair, there's nobody to do it in compliance with NIOSH/NFPA.
That being the case, wouldn't they qualify for immediate replacement? Or do I have some bits missing or misplaced?"I've met lots of volunteer firefighters, but I've never seen a volunteer fire!"
