Buy a cheap UPS with a USB or serial connection to your
computer. Even if it only supplies power for 2 minutes, that's
enough time for the computer to receive the power outage signal
and do an orderly shutdown.

Useful packages:

apcupsd
nut

Cyberpower's UPS systems have Linux support but not Debian
packages; it takes about 10 minutes to download their scripts
and figure out configuration.
