There is not much that you can do in this situation. Leave the dead growth until the warm weather appears again. After you see new growth then you know it is alive, and you can cut the dead growth then.

This is unfortunate, but sometimes they do survive. Here is an article for more information on the tree:https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/rubber-tree/rubber-plant-outdoors.htm
