Do you know where to get a one page guide for hydration/ exercise guidelines for heat

...that I could copy for hand out to coaches and parents? I find articles but need just a "fact sheet."

Here is a link to a very informative guide from the Mayo Clinic:

Here is a page from the CDC with printable brochures and posters:

Here are very concise photos with the symptoms, and the suggested first aid for heat cramps, heat exaustion and heat stroke from a consumer health website, Skinsight.com:
