Yes you do, and your situation changes the plan slightly. In your case, your first order of business is to arm yourself, round up your kids and wife and get them to a place of safety. Now you hunker down with them and call 911 (or perhaps your wife, in your safe room, was doing it while you're rounding up the kids). You still don't try clearing your house.
