Yes as long as you do not get in a accident thats what the reset is for. It will shut the fuel off so there is no fire

You will have to isolated/diagnose that it is the fuel inertia switch that is causing your problem. Your fuel pump might be the real issue or a totally different issue. Any CEL on?
