My Sago Palms have gotten sunburned from the 118 degree weather in So California. What should I prune on them.

I am including pictures of some of my plants and would appreciate any help you can give me. Should I prune off the yellow leaves and should I fertilize the plants. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

Only prune them if they are completely dead. Do not prune leaves with green still in them. Make sure to move them to a shady location during the heat. This will prevent the occurrence in the future.
