Yes, any home or business that is prone to power outages should have some kind of backup power source.

As per the OESC a homeowner is able to install lights in their own home if no new wiring is needed. However, if you are installing a new ceiling, make sure the device box is rated to hold the weight of the ceiling fan. The code require ceiling fans to be mounted on special fan-rated boxes, which are made of metal or strong plastic and have deep-threaded holes for the mounting screws. The box must be mounted firmly, either by attaching it directly to a framing member or by using a fan-rated brace. This installation would be best performed by an electrician.

First make sure the switch is in the complete off position until it clicks in place. Now try to reset. If it still will not reset, then there is an issue which needs to be rectified. Consider this your red flag. Either there is a short, or an overload to that circuit.
