1. Check your circuit breaker
If the lights suddenly go out, grab a flashlight and check if something tripped your circuit breaker. Sometimes, your home can lose power because you blew a circuit breaker.

Emergency radio
Emergency contact info (e.g., your work phone number/s, the power company’s telephone number, etc.)
