A Planet Fitness Evacuates After WiFi Network Named 'Remote Detonator' Shows Up

April 16, 2018

 A Planet Fitness in Michigan was evacuated recently when a gym goer noticed a WiFi connection with the name "remote detonator".   

Saginaw police Chief Donald Pussehl said the individual brought the connection’s name to the attention of management.  They ordered an evacuation then called local police.  The fitness center was closed for three hours while police searched the building with the aid of bomb sniffing dogs.

Chief Pussehl also said that because there was “no crime or threat,” no charges would be filed. He continued to speak about the fact that people sometimes tend to have strange WiFi connection names. 

Planet Fitness said management followed company guidelines whenever there might be a safety issue.
