Evacuation signs

If you go to school or College, or work in an office, you've definitely seen the luminous signs "Exit" (or Exit). Because the signs need to hold people to a safe place in the event of a disaster, they are not connected to the electrical network of the building as the electricity in an emergency situation, most likely will be gone. So how do they radiate this light? The light emits a radioactive isotope of hydrogen – tritium contained in the sign.
