I did a shoot in 120-degrees in New Cuyama, CA- keep the camera covered with a reflective blanket, our SR3 got too hot to touch! I was worried about the film (also fuji), but it pulled through just fine, maybe because we were only out there a day, and kept it in coolers.
you'll see your actors and others start to drop like flies if they don't keep a lot of water and shade available!

And yes, lot's of water and sunscreen. If you can have the grips or someone set up a 4x4, or 6x6 to shade the camera that will also be good.
If there's lots of blowing sand perhaps a haze filter might be good to protect the front element, maybe even a 2, or 2B to cut through some of the UV. Lot's of dust off and a couple of soft brushes.
Yeah, keep the film cool with ice packs in a cooler.

On my desert shoot last year I was amazed at where the sand got into. Even tightly zipped camera bags had sand in the bottom of them.
