To start with, you could set:
...in /etc/rc.conf to force filesystem checking to happen first.
However, you are not going to have a very happy computing experience
with any flavor of Unix if you keep shutting the system down
uncleanly several times a day because of power failures. Try to
obtain a UPS with a serial or USB connection and use a port like
apcupsd to shut down cleanly...
