According to reported testing barium, strontium, and trilium were found in high levels at the WTC. Trilium would indicate radioactive explosion, and barium and strontrium can be indicative of both radioactive or non-radioactive explosion or implosion.
Several tritium radioluminescent (RL) devices were investigated as possible sources ofthe traces of tritium at ground zero. It was determined that [the]Boeing 767-222 aircraft operated by the United Airlines that hit WTC Tower 2 as well as [the]Boeing 767-223ER operated by the American Airlines, that hit WTC Tower 1, had a combined 34[.3] Ci of tritiumat the time of impact, contained in emergency signs. WTC hosted several law-enforcement agencies such as ATF, CIA, US Secret Service and US Customs. The ATF office had two weapon vaults in WTC Building 6. Also 63 Police Officers, possibly carrying handguns, died in the attack. The weaponry containing tritium sights was therefore a likely and significant source of tritium. It is possible that some of the 2824 victims carried tritium watches, however this source appears to be less significant than the other two
The primary use for strontium compounds is in glass for colour television cathode ray tubes to prevent X-ray emission.
Unless people read at the websites, they would not know what is considered higher than normal levels.
Tritium is a gas. It disperses quickly in the air, and can normally not be detected with the Geiger counters from Hazmat units, which are not build specifically to detect alpha and beta particles.

Tritium like regular hydrogen burns, result is tritiated water. Either
T-T-O or T-H-O ( T = tritium, H= hydrogen). Elevated levels of
tritiated water were detected in some samples taken from site.
They are numerous sources of tritium from various luminous "night" sites
to supply it.
