Keep Emergency Lights Handy

Uneven or unfamiliar footing is a prime cause of falls in the dark, and during an emergency even familiar surfaces can become treacherous. Keep a flashlight with extra batteries near your bed in case of a power outage. Also carry a small LED flashlight on your key ring. It's perfect for walking to and from the garage as well as in unfamiliar places like hotels and city streets. If you have a smartphone that includes a flashlight, use it. If your phone doesn't, there are many free flashlight apps available (but read the fine print about whether these apps may be able to access data from your phone once downloaded).
