World-wide, several detectors currently running or nearing completion are sensitive to a prompt core collapse supernova neutrino signal in the Galaxy. The SNEWS system will be able to provide early warning of a supernova's occurrence to the astronomical community using a coincidence of neutrino signals around the world. Here we describe the status of SNEWS, and point out some possibilities for using SNEWS for the next generation of detectors.
