You don't have to be a liveaboard to be prepared to vacate, during the fires in Southern California our home was threatened so we developed our bail out spot which is now Catalina or San Clemente (if open) islands...prepping to bail is not difficult, we have it down to 2 large duffle bags and we can sustain ourselves for 2 or more weeks, longer if we fish.

Every boat should have basic provisions for X people for at least 3 days on board...water, MRE's, medications etc...doesn't take up much space and could be a real lifesaver should it become necessary for an expedited departure..
