For the flash light / torch toggle we are using the _input method that accepts an event argument. I think is better to use that event argument instead of also use the Input singleton as in my opinion it makes little sense to use the _input method if we are gonna continue using the singleton inside it’s body so I used:

func _input(event):
    if event.is_action_pressed('ui_flash_light'):

I also defined a new ui action (ui_flash_light) for when key F is pressed
