I've seen some people have a HiViz triangle attached.

Do you have any advice and links to items that may help with this?

IMO, reflective items are ancillary,and active illumination is necessary. Another one of my safety aphorisms is "When riding at night, look for cars, not just headlights." "Thoughtless and careless lunatics" are more likely to be driving without their headlights on.

I wear two rearward lights, for dyssynchrony (steady and blinking) and redundancy, in case one goes out.
