In the event any portion of the uniform, equipment or personal belongings of any member of the Fire Department is damaged while such employee is actually engaged in the performance of his city duties, and as result of such performance of his duties, the city shall pay for the depreciated cost of such damaged items of uniform, equipment or personal belongings, based upon the portion of the useful life of such item remaining. In no event, however, shall the total amount paid for any one such item exceed the sum of $75. If any such employee shall receive compensation or reimbursement from any insurance program, private or otherwise, for any such damaged item, then, to the extent of any such other reimbursement or compensation, he shall not also receive any payment from the city under the provisions of this section; and, if he has theretofore received any such payment from the city, he shall reimburse the city therefor.
