Abstract: A core collapse in the Milky Way will produce an enormous burst of neutrinosin detectors world-wide. Such a burst has the potential to provide an earlywarning of a supernova-s appearance. I will describe the nature of the signal,the sensitivity of current detectors, and SNEWS, the SuperNova Early WarningSystem, a network designed to alert astronomers as soon as possible after thedetected neutrino signal.
