The observation of the neutrino burst coming from the next Galactic Core-Collapse SuperNova (CCSN) and its gravitational wave and electromagnetic counterparts will provide us invaluable information on this extreme phenomenon. KM3NeT is a neutrino telescope consisting of two detectors, ORCA and ARCA, currently under deployment in the Mediterranean Sea. By searching for an excess of coincidences above the optical background, KM3NeT is able to detect low energy neutrinos coming from CCSN. The sensitivity to Galactic and near-Galactic events is expected when data from the two infrastructures is combined. With its integration in the SNEWS global alert network and the ongoing work to compute, transmit and combine the neutrino light-curves of different detectors, KM3NeT will play a key part in notifying other telescopes before the arrival of the other messengers. In this contribution, we present the real-time detection capabilities of KM3NeT, the additional information that can be brought by light-curve computations and the follow-up of external alerts.
